Powerlifter Kristy Hawkins showed an absolutely crazy performance at the Slingshot Record Breakers meet in Dublin, California, at CSA gym last weekend. The meet hosted many famous athletes. Kristy Hawkins competed in the 165lb/75kg weight class and broke several all-time world records.
Hawkins’s name already appeared in multiple headlines for many reasons. This time, Kristy not only broke a world record but swept each current all-time world record set in that weight class.
It’s a real rarity to see all such feats accomplished in powerlifting at the same meet. Hawkins was first in her weight class and finished with an epic 616 Wilks Score.
Hawkins finished with a 529lb/240kg squat, a 331lb/150.5kg bench press, and a 557b/253kg deadlift in her lifts. All of these lifts in a total of 1418lbs/643.5kg brought Hawkins an all-time world record.
See her amazing performance below.

My best lifts from #slingshotrecordbreakers yesterday: Squat: 240kg/529lb (WR) Bench: 150.5kg/331lb (WR) Deadlift: 253kg/557lb (WR) Total: 643.5kg/1418lb (WR) Wilks: 616 if you're into that sorta thing. This is actually the second time I've held all the world records in the 75kg/165lb weight class (I also have the wrapped squat and total) except the first time I didn't even know I had the bench record. Also cool to do it all in one meet and win $4K for it. Thank you to everyone @bossbarbellclub, especially @herbietheluvbug who has been such a great training partner and friend, @bossladysparkle for videos and snacks, @dangreenpowerlifter for advice, @max_aita for teaching me how to squat, @jesseburdick for another great meet, and @marksmellybell @eddycoan and @stanefferding for everything you do to support powerlifting. #nohashtagsneeded except #pugsandpowerlifting
Hawkins writes in the description to her Instagram video: “This is actually the second time I’ve held all the world records in the 75kg/165lb weight class (I also have the wrapped squat and total) except the first time I didn’t even know I had the bench record.

The most amazing thing is that this is the second time Kristy Hawkins holds all of her weight class’s record. Now everyone hopes to see her amazing performance in 2019.
