Throughout her career, Tamara Walcott has consistently proven she’s one of the greatest powerlifters ever. The 90-plus kilogram athlete’s latest official showing of strength in a full power meet might be her best yet.
On July 30, 2022, while competing raw, Walcott captured a 290-kilogram (639.3-pound) deadlift during the 2022 World Raw Powerlifting Federation (WRPF) American Pro. The pull surpasses her own previous figure from the 2021 WRPF The Bucked Up Showdown and is the new All-Time World Record by 1.5 kilograms (3.3 pounds). Walcott wore a lifting belt and lifting straps and used a conventional stance to capture her deadlift record.
Walcott also captured a total of 735 kilograms (1,620.4 pounds) for the new All-Time World Record. It surpasses April Mathis’s former top mark from the 2011 American Powerlifting Federation (APF) Southern States by 4.71 kilograms (10.4 pounds).
