Amanda Lawrence (84KG) Sets 3 Raw World Records at 2021 IPF World Championships

Lawrence is now IPF's queen of the deadlift and squat at 84-kilograms.

The 2021 International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) World Championships was an extravaganza of world records. The contest took place in Halmstad, Sweden, from Sept. 29 through Oct. 3, 2021. The Woman’s 84-kilogram class was the stage upon which Amanda Lawrence stole the show. Her gold-medal performance racked up an IPF raw world record squat and IPF raw world record deadlift. This successful title defense from the 2019 IPF World Championships makes her a two-time IPF world champion.
