By Ontario Powerlifting Association

OSHAWA – Ontario Powerlifting is extremely saddened to learn of the passing of national team athlete, Provincial Executive, and 27-years in powerlifting Glynn Moore after a courageous battle with a heart condition.

He was 70 years old.

“I am shocked and saddened to learn of Glynn’s passing,” said Ontario Powerlifting President Barry Antoniow, a fellow Powerlifting. “He was a tremendous powerlifter and competitor who represented our country on the biggest stage. Above all, Glynn was a great person and will be dearly missed.”

Born in Wales, Moore represented Canada at the IPF Master Worlds in 2001, 03, 05, 11 and walked onto the National Platform 8 times.

He was voted for the Canadian Powerlifting Athlete of the Year in 2001, 2011 and was Awarded the Bill Jamieson Award in 2010.

Moore had some of the best Local, Provincial and National Championships in St. Catherine’s where he hosted all his competitions. He set the standard for Ontario competitions and that bar was set high. Glyn ran 19 Niagara Opens, 2 Nationals and an IPF World Championship. Glyn was an inventor as well, fabricating his own combo rack, plate holder and deadlift jack to name a few.

With his lifting career winding down, Moore returned to the Provincial Association Board once again and inspired the Executive with integrity and the best interest of the sport.

Ontario Powerlifting sends sincere condolences to Glynn’s his wife Marlene and family.
