So.. Luke again,

Competed in IPF world's today in the 120+ juniors (u23)

Squatted 337.5 for gold
Benched 190 for silver
Deadlifted 337.5 for silver

Totalled 865kg / 490 wilks on his 20th Birthday!

Amazingly this only got him second place. First was taken by Ukraine's Pavlo Nakonechnyy who totalled 875.5. [edited]

Anyway here's some of his lifts, last 2 deadlifts are missing because the stream was poverty (and the commentary might make your ears bleed so apologies!)

Watched it Live this morning (apart from the ending, obv) and it was a great little battle - thought Richardson did extremely well.

Has Pavlo really got THAT much stronger over the last few months, given his ~9kg weight gain?
I know Richardson beat him by 35kg at the Euros but he loaded on enough to win on the final pull and missed it, the gap was a lot less than the result suggested.

Meh...I'm as cynical as they come (see some other recent thread) but that looks like a completely different pulling style that could account for much of that difference...

Regardless, both immense performances, Lukes now well on his way to a 900 total and if I understand correctly there's only one other person in the GBPF to ever total 900 which is Tony Cliffe. That would be a massive achievement especially as a junior.
