Ok, so a little background on me before we begin.
My powerlifting career started back in March of 2009, when I began training with Clint Harwood (The first man in Canada to ever Bench Press over 800 lbs) in his gym, The Anvil. I started off as a Bench Only lifter and, with only 3 months of Powerlifting training, set a National Record (230kg) in the 125kg Teen weight class in my first meet. This lift exceeded the AWPC World Teen Bench Only record, but was set at a local meet, and therefore could not claim the record.
In September 2009, my college football career came to an end due to injury, and I became further involved in Powerlifting. My first full meet was at the CPO Ontario Championships, where in the 140kg Teen class, I set a further 4 National Records. I totaled 795kgs, narrowly missing an AWPC Teenage Elite total in my first full meet.
On May 9th, 2009, even despite a poor showing due to complications from a weight cut, I set 3 AWPC World Records, 3 CPF Amateur Open Records and 4 CPF Amateur Junior records, as well as posting my first AWPC Elite total, just missing a WPC Elite total by 24kgs. Hitting only my opening squat attempt, I totaled 886kgs, with a 341kg squat, 272.5kg bench press and a 272.5kg deadlift.
