Battle for the Pacific - Oceania Champs (04/01/13)
145 lifters from 7 nations across the Oceania region descended upon North Sydney for the Oceania Powerlifting and Bench Press Champs from 7-9 December. This was a competition reduced to a raw only format, but nonetheless it was an amazing 3 day event and certainly one of the best the Oceania region has seen for a while.
With a plethora of National, Oceania, Commonwealth and World Records broken being too many to name, one of note was the open deadlift World Record by Nghiep Luu who pulled 271kg under 66kg bodyweight. This is the first time an open World Record has been set by an Oceania lifter since Katrina Robertson's miracle 263.5kg deadlift to win the 1997 World Champs.
At the end of it all Australia ended up being the top lifting nation, Stephen Pritchard of Australia was overall best lifter on points despite being downed by the mammoth Samoan, Oliva Kirisome, whilst Mary Macken of Australia took out best female lifter by a fair margin. For the bench pressers, Aussie Jasmine Higgs took out the best female award and the wider than ever Paul Offord of Australia once again hoisted up the biggest bench of the comp with a very impressive 235kg press.
