Powerlifter Clara Peyraud (69KG) Deadlifts 230.5-kg (508.2-lb) For an Unofficial Junior IPF World Record – Fitness Volt

Despite still being a Junior athlete due to her age of 21-years-old, Clara Peyraud has already established herself in the Open category among some much older and more experienced powerlifters. Moreover, Clara has made a giant step forward in her career the past weekend, having found success at the 2023 FFForce French Nationals, which took place from September 20-24. She took part in the 69-kilogram weight class, ultimately managing to claim the title and even Unofficially breaking one IPF Junior World Record. This incredible feat of strength came in the deadlift event, where Clara pulled 230.5 kilograms (508.2 pounds).

Clara Peyraud had a very rocky start to the competition, more so in the bench press event, but everything changed when she came out to perform the deadlifts. This was clear from the ease with which Clara locked out her first pull of 212.5 kilograms (468.5 pounds). So, she quickly loaded 10 kilograms (22 pounds) more on her second attempt, crushed it once again, and set her sights on the third and final one.

Clara Peyraud came out for her third attempt with some chalk on her hands and got into a sumo stance after a few deep breaths. She then grabbed the barbell with a hook grip and started pulling 230.5 kilograms (508.2 pounds) with nothing but a lifting belt to aid her. Displaying no struggle throughout the lift, Clara was aware that this was a great lift. So, her celebration started even before she fully locked it out.

Obviously, being as dominant as she is, Clara Peyraud also holds the official IPF Junior World Record Deadlift. It currently stands at 227.5 kilograms (501.6 pounds), which is exactly 3 kilograms (6.6 pounds) lighter than her recent pull at the 2023 FFForce French Nationals.

Clara Peyraud’s Full Performance

Although it came out to be very successful, Clara Peyraud’s performance was far from what she envisioned prior to the competition. She missed three of her nine attempts overall. One of them was the third squat attempt, which would have been a new competition PR for her.

On the other hand, she missed her first two bench press attempts. So it was a necessity for her to successfully complete her third one in order to avoid disqualification. Clara prevailed under pressure and then went on to unofficially break the IPF Junior World Record Deadlift.

Despite all of the struggles she encountered during the 2023 FFForce French Nationals, Clara Peyraud still won the title by a convincing margin. Her Total of 528 kilograms (1,164 pounds) was 35.5 kilograms (78.3 pounds) heavier than the Total of Le Bras Pauline, who finished in second place.
