How To Watch Andrea Thompson’s Women’s Log Lift World Record Attempt

Thompson will attempt to break the record currently set at 122.5kg/270lb.

The next episode in the “Feats of Strength” series by World’s Ultimate Strongman will take place this Saturday, July 4th. It will feature the 2018 World’s Strongest Woman champion and 4-time Britain’s Strongest Woman Andrea Thompson’s attempt to set a new women’s log lift world record.

This will be the third time that the log lift discipline is featured on the “Feats of Strength” series. The first was Luke Stoltman’s world record log lift attempt of 230kg/507lb that he was ultimately unable to hit. The second was a fortnight ago when Rob Kearney successfully locked out a new American log lift record of 215.8kg/475.75lb.

Thompson’s attempt will be available to view via livestream on CoreSports.world at 12pm EST / 5pm UK. 4-time World’s Strongest Man Zydrunas Savickas will return as the official referee for the event.

Thompson is no stranger to world records as her name is currently next to the women’s elephant bar deadlift world record. She secured that massive feat in the Rogue Record Breaker event at the 2o2o Arnold Pro Strongwoman event back in March. Thompson pulled a gargantuan 281kg/621lb to break the record of 279kg/616lb that was set just moments prior by Kristin Rhodes.

Speaking of Rhodes, she is a former women’s log lift world record holder of 120kg/265lb. That was surpassed by Samantha Coleman’s world record lift of 122.5kg/270lb and lasted until Danielle Vaji set the current record of 129kg/284lb last year.

Thompson has proven on camera that she is capable to lifting more than that. Just over two weeks ago on her Instagram page, she shared a post where he pressed a 125kg/275lb log overhead in smooth fashion. If you missed that lift, you can check it out below:

“Awesome confidence boost for my world record attempt in a few weeks.”

The question heading into this weekend may not be will Thompson set a new women’s log lift world record, but by how much?
