    In the men’s 40-50 age group, George Sotirakos came up from Lowell, MA, lifting at 242lbs but weighing in at 238, making his bench press huge…George very kindly bench pressed 297.5 Kg (655.9 Lbs), and pulled 307.5 Kg (677.9 Lbs) on the deadlift.

    Another one of our out-of-state lifters was Randy Favreau from Pelham, NH, lifting at 198 Lbs, put in a very nice 222.5 Kb (490.5 Lbs) bench and a 255.0 Kb (562.2 Lbs) deadlift. A great day for Randy who cut weight for the event.
