Amanda Lawrence (84KG) Sets Raw Squat & Total World Records at 2024 IPF Sheffield Powerlifting Championships – Fitness Volt

Amanda Lawrence is known to be quite a record breaker, so her expectations for the 2024 IPF Sheffield Powerlifting Championships were extremely high. Luckily, she managed to fulfill her goals, having set two new raw U84KG IPF World Records in the Squat and Total events.

Being the first event of the competition, the squat turned out to be quite successful for Amanda Lawrence. She opened up with a 235-kilogram (518.1-pound) lift, but it was clear that she had a lot more in the tank. So, Amanda decided to make a huge jump for her second attempt and thus loaded 249.5 kilograms (550 pounds) on the barbell. She successfully completed this lift, which meant that she officially set a new U84KG IPF World Record.

Amanda Lawrence did attempt to further improve it by 3.5 kilograms (7.7 pounds) on her final attempt, but it proved to be slightly over her capabilities on the day.

Amanda Lawrence held the old record as well, which stood at 249 kilograms (549 pounds) from her appearance at the 2023 IPF World Classic Powerlifting Championships. So, having exceeded the mark, Amanda was awarded with £5,000.
