In 2020 Ashleigh Hoeta felt numbness in her leg, her face drooping and was rushed to hospital to find she’d suffered a stroke. 

She had to teach herself how to walk again, move her legs and fingers, all while raising two children.  

Not only that, in October this year, her father passed away after a long battle with emphysema.

Now, Ashleigh has just become the first woman to bench 317.5kg in equipped powerlifting, breaking the world record. She’s one of the top women arm wrestlers and an ex international gymnast. 

Ashleigh Hoeta joined Jack Tame to discuss her journey and breaking the world record.
