Tamara Walcott Breaks A World Record For Heaviest Cumulative Lift

Tamara Walcott, a powerlifter from Laurel, Maryland, has broken the world record for the heaviest cumulative lift for bench/squat and press in a women’s competition. According to Guinness World Records, Walcott lifted a total of 1,620.4 pounds across three compound lifts: the squat, bench press and deadlift.

The Maryland native achieved the record-breaking feat after overcoming several challenges in her life, including obesity. Walcott, a divorced mother of two, initially wanted to play basketball and baseball. But her busy schedule made it difficult to find time for those sports. In 2018, she learned about powerlifting, a sport she could practice individually on her own time.
