D Standard 250kg
T Standard 590kg

Dr. Leverage himself, Mike Kuhns, is still the sole Standard beater here with a mighty 247kg Squat from back in 2017. 2019’s top 62s have a way to go but lurking in the background is former recordholder Kevin Gray, readying to fill the void in 2020.

69kg jp cauchi

J P Cauchi retains the mark in the Deadlift four years on, but has moved on to more ample pastures at 77.  That left Lenard Jones of the US on top in 2019 with 622kg at the Worlds, done handily and heading up towards the required 650kg.

T Standard 710kg
77kg dianxiong lin

Lin of China is that nation’s sole WR setter, but just wait for Powerlifting to really take off in that country. Downunder duo Odsey and Tukua  hold their own in the other lifts but all are still chasing that elusive 710kg Total Standard.

T Brett Gibs 814kg NZL 29 Apr 2017 Sydney
85kg deamo The numbers don’t lie, this is a quality class but fresh blood is needed for 2020. Amongst the big names we find the impish Brett Gibbs and since injured Nathan Tanis. Deamo Baguga is Nauru’s flagbearer with 322kg Deadlift.

S Bronco Deiranauw 303kg NRU 30 Apr 2016 Sydney
B Standard 205kg
D Standard 325kg
T Standard 810kg
94kg bronco Bronco Deiranauw is the one with Squat records here and at 105kg, but was last sighted playing football. The 94kg ranks were thin in 2019 but some prospects are lurking for 2020, including dark horse Tony Nguyen, already on the edge of the Deadlift Standard nationally.

D Kryzysztof Wierzbicki 400kg POL 26 Jan 2020 Beyreuth
T Kryzysztof Wierzbicki 895kg POL 26 Jan 2020 Beyreuth
105kg Was this the greatest lift of all-time? 400kg Deadlift at 97.1kg bodyweight by Krzysztof Wierzbicki of Poland will surely stand for all time, unless he uncorks something special again. Krzysztof’s 895kg total done on the same day is also up there. And lest we forget, Michael Dudley’s 234kg Bench Press from back in 2017 is also a venerable performance.

D Michael Eaton 380kg USA 20 May 2017 Prince Frederick
T Cameron McKenzie 888kg AUS 10 Dec 2016 Christchurch
Cameron McKenzie has held on to a lucky 888kg Total record since 2016. Having now completed his  studies and back in action with 870kg in December 2019, Cameron will tackle 900kg in 2020. Sane Faatoe holds the BP record already but has since gone 258kg overweight and is psyched to jump the WR up very soon.

D Cameron McKenzie 355kg AUS 20 Aug 2016 Perth
T Jezza Uepa 1042kg NRU 10 Dec 2017 Singapore
Jezza is the name everyone knows and these records are safe as the big man ambles off into the Masters. 2019’s dominant Super Tony Reinmuth looks secure with that title for a while but 1042kg is the big ask he has to chase.
