Ninety-Five Pound Woman Breaks Men's Dead Lifting Guinness World Record by nearly 15,000 Pounds
Athletes who heard the rumor said it couldn't be done. How could a 5-foot woman, barely weighing in at 95 pounds compete with professional weightlifting men to set a new world record? On August 14, at St. Emydius Gym in San Francisco, Dr. Thienna Ho showed them how as she set the new Guinness World Record for the heaviest sumo deadlift in one hour.
"If a 200 pound man did this, he would have to lift nearly 100 pounds more than 1,000 times in an hour. The man who broke this world record in 2007, Eamonn Keane, did 731 repetitions of 95 pounds."
The world record was 90,058 pounds in one hour; Thienna achieved 104,846 pounds and three ounces in one hour.
