Patricia Johnson (+84 kg сategory) Sets Powerlifting Records 255kg and Continues Unbeaten Streak

The year 2023 saw one of the biggest competitions in powerlifting. Some experts say it was actually the biggest of them all. We’re talking about the senior IPF competition that took place in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The athletes who participated there from October 8 to 15 showed great results and a good show for the spectators that we won’t forget for a long time. There were some of the most outstanding performances, but we decided to highlight Patricia Johnson

In this competition she competed in the raw +84 kg category. She was able to set world records when she competed in the Masters 2 age category (50-59 years old). There were two of them: in the bench press and in the combined total of the two lifts.

What is amazing is the fact that Patricia almost reached the other records. She could have set three records at once, but squats were not given for that. She probably threw all her efforts precisely on two positions to get the exact world recognition. In the end, she still looked very energetic after setting the record, so she probably could have touched a third world record as well.

Let’s look at the numbers now. Patricia Johnson set a world record in her age category in the deadlift on her first attempt. She squeezed out 231 kilograms without any effort! Still on the third attempt she was able to lift even more and the mark stopped at 255 kilograms. This is an absolute record.
