Inez Carrasquillo is an elite Strongwoman athlete, but her incredible static strength is what attracted the public’s eye. Inez is mostly known for her log lift prowess and after unofficially becoming the first Strongwoman to log clean & press 300 lbs back in February of this year, she is now lifting even more. On April 25th, 2022, Inez Carrasquillo shared a massive 315 lbs (142.9 kg) log clean & press on her Instagram account.
This lift is an Unofficial Strongwoman World Record in the log clean & press event. Not only did Inez Carrasquillo beat the current World Record, but did it convincingly by lifting almost 20 lbs more. The current log clean & press Strongwoman World Record is in possession of Andrea Thompson, as she locked out 297.7 lbs (135 kg) at the 2020 WUS Feats of Strength.
Inez Carrasquillo used a lifting belt, knee sleeves, wrist wraps, and elbow sleeves to aid her in the lift. Inez had an invitation for the 2022 Clash on the Coast Record Breakers, which took place on February 22nd. This would have been the perfect opportunity for her to make the record official, but she did not attend the competition. Inez states,
“I was invited, but it wasn’t my time.”

The Puerto Rican representative, Inez Carrasquillo, has started Strongwoman relatively recently. However, she does not lack success in official competitions. Inez Carrasquillo’s debut competition was the 2021 World Strongest Woman contest, where she finished in fourth place. She had two more competitions in 2022 and won both of them. Inez came out victorious in the 2022 Arnold Amateur Strongwoman World Championships and the 2022 Beerstone.
Inez Carrasquillo’s early success in the sport of Strongwoman was largely due to her previous experience in powerlifting. She took part in three sanctioned powerlifting competitions in 2019 & 2020. Inez managed to claim all three wins in the 90+ kg weight class and also set impressive PRs.

Judging by her recent posts, it is only a matter of margin by which Inez will beat the current record.
