Inez Carrasquillo has been competing professionally in Strongwoman for less than two years, but she quickly became one of the biggest names in the sport. In addition to putting up some impressive results, she is now raising the bar for herself and for the entire Strongwoman scene. Most recently, Inez claimed a brand new achievement for herself, having set a 145.8-kilogram (321.4-pound) Log Lift World Record.
Inez Carrasquillo took part in the 2023 Rainier Classic, which took place on July 8-9, 2023, in Burien, Washington. One of the events on the first day was the Log Lift for max weight, where Inez managed to set a new World Record with a 145.8-kilogram (321.4-pound) lift.
Andrea Thopson was the previous record holder in the Log Lift event, having set the record back in October of 2022. The record was set during the 2022 World Log Lift Championships. However, Inez has now moved the mark by 5.8 kilograms (12.8 pounds). The video of Inez’s Log Lift was shared on her Instagram.
“321.4lbs. I am so damn proud of myself. My first, but not last, world record. 🖤🤘🏼”
