260 deadlift? i thought people with mental disabilites were generally naturally stronger than most folks? - im not trying to sound ignorant, i think its a good effort and all too so good for him im sure he gets a lot out of it.

I can see why powerlifting would be a good fit for the guy (I have asperger's myself).

I didn't know powerlifting was an approved sport for the Special Olympics. Pretty cool.
