IPF Squat World File Damaged Thrice within the 120KG Class at IPF Geared up World Championships

The 120KG geared up squat world document elevated by 12 kilograms (26.5 kilos).

The 120-kilogram class on the 2023 Worldwide Powerlifting Federation (IPF) Geared up World Championships (WEC) from Nov. 13-18, 2023, in Druskininkai, Lithuania, noticed an intense battle for the IPF squat world document. It was damaged 3 times in a conflict between Sen Yang (TPE) and Danylo Kovalov (UKR), who met on the lifting platform for the primary time.

Sen Yang squatted 447.5 kilograms (987 kilos) for his second squat try, including seven kilograms (15.5 kilos) to his IPF world document. A couple of minutes later, Kovalov referred to as for 448 kilograms (988 kilos) to say the document. He clearly hadn’t discovered his prime finish at 120-kilograms because it didn’t appear to be a wrestle for him.

As Sen Yang approached the platform for his ultimate try of 452.5 kilograms, there was a visual bend within the Eleiko competitors barbell. He was managed and upright all through the descent, and the single-ply gear — squat go well with and knee wraps — rewarded him with a quick ascent that was faster than his second try.

Sen Yang has been a heavy squatter his whole powerlifting profession. At his first IPF WEC in 2015, Sen Yang squatted 400 kilograms (882 kilos) within the 105-kilogram class, and he steadily improved ever since.

Sen Yang moved into the 120-kilogram class in 2019 and took his first shot on the squat world document in Stavanger, Norway, on the 2021 IPF WEC. He squatted 437.5 kilograms (964.5 kilos) that day however suffered disappointment when his grip failed, leaving him with no profitable deadlift to publish a complete. Within the IPF, a squat world document should be accompanied by a complete to be accepted, so Sen Yang forfeited his would-be IPF squat world document.

Nonetheless, all of it got here collectively for Sen Yang on the 2022 World Video games in Birmingham, AL. He secured the document with an impressively fast 440 kilograms (882 kilos). He added half a kilo (one pound) on the 2022 WEC in Viborg, Denmark. That’s the place it stood because the 2023 IPF WEC kicked off. Take a look at the raise under:

Ukraine’s Danylo Kovalov was IPF geared up Sub-Junior World Champion in 2014 and Junior champion from 2017-19. On the 2021 WEC in Stavanger, Norway, Kovalov turned the Open World Champion, too. At that time, Kovalov was competing within the 105-kilogram class however moved to the 120-kilogram class in 2023. 

Sen Yang was the primary to interrupt the document on the 2022 World Video games. The IPF world information have been reset in 2011 following a shake-up of the burden classes. The information weren’t left clean, although. The IPF set a typical for every document to be met or exceeded to say it. The usual for the geared up 120-kilogram class was set at 430 kilograms. It took 11 years for anybody to satisfy it.

The subsequent time Sen Yang and Kovalov meet in sanctioned competitors is in Reykjavík, Iceland, on the 2024 WEC.
