Our member Ozzie Hyppolite competed last month in the 2014 USAPL NJ State Powerlifting Championships. After a hard-fought battle among the top lifters in the 181lb Open division, Ozzie placed second out of 11 lifters in the division with a total just 5lb behind the first-place finisher. Ozzie totaled 1,284lb with a 447lb squat, a 331lb bench press, and a 507lb deadlift. Ozzie's bench press was a New York State record! Great lifting, Ozzie!
