Lifters from North and South Carolina travelled well to Aurora, Colorado this past weekend for the USA Powerlifting Benchpress National Championship. Our lifters from South Carolina did not disappoint either!
Kevin Locklear (74 kg), who competed in both the RAW and equipped categories won the National Championship in the M1 division (142.5 kg) while lifting RAW and finished third (155 kg) in the equipped.
Donnie Haddock (120 kg), who recently turned 60 won the M3 division National Championship in the RAW category with a lift of 175 kg. This also broke the South Carolina State record!
Todd Talford (83 kg), who competed in the RAW open class, scratched and clawed against some incredibly tough competition and won the Open National Championship with a lift of 192.5 kg. Todd gave an American Record attempt of 200.5 kg on heck of a ride on his final attempt. Great job guys!
