Coming into the contest, the women’s world record on the IronMind Hub was 42 lb. (held by Amy Wattles) and when Elizabeth Horne was done, she’d succeeded with 25.33 kg (55.84 lb.) followed by a close miss with 25.81 kg (56.90 lb.).  IronMind reviewed the 25.33 kg lift and ratified it as a new women’s world record on the IronMind Hub.

“It was a fun day’s events, with new lifters competing alongside the more seasoned competitors,” David Horne told IronMind.  “Only three competitors wanted to tackle the Hub Champs, which we started first. But very good lifters they are.
“On another day, Chris Lowe can get up towards that world record I believe, as he’s only just come back from some very serious surgery to his face and body!  Jerome Bloom lifted 26.87 kg at a bodyweight of 65.9 kg, which is a fantastic lift for someone so light.”
