Records Update – 17 Wing November 25, 2017

As of now all records have been updated from this past weekends 17 Wing competition. A total of 45+ records were broken! As our sport is growing so is the strength of our lifters. We are now breaking records that are 30 + years old! A record to make mention of is the 66 Kg Equipped total record of 495kg by lifter Dwayne Feakes which has not been broken since April 1987. It was broken by lifter Jayson Palapuz with his 517.5kg total this past weekend. I will imagine more of this older records will be broken in the future.
