At only 22-years-old, Jordanne Panton is just entering the prime years of her life. She has always been successful, but in recent times, it seems like she has gotten much better. Jordanne took part in the 2022 Arnold Sports Festival – USAPL Pro Deadlift. She stood atop the podium with a massive 233 kg (513 lbs) deadlift. This deadlift is also the New American Record in the 67.5 kg weight class.
This competition only had the deadlift event, and these are Jordanne Panton’s three attempts:
- 205 kg (452 lbs)
- 225 kg (496 lbs)
- 233 kg (513 lbs) New American Record in the 67.5 kg weight class
Jordanne weighed in at 66.62 kg (146.9 lbs), which means she pulled 3.5x her bodyweight. She deadlifts with a sumo stance, and only used a lifting belt to aid her in the lift. Her deadlift got her a DOTS score of 242.386, which was enough for a comfortable victory. The win in this competition also got her $750 of prize money.

The previous deadlift American record stood at 230 kg (507.1 lbs). Firstly, it was set by Kimberley Walford at the 2013 USAPL Raw Nationals. However, at the 2021 USAPL Virginia Pro, Samantha Calhoun tied the record by pulling the same weight.
Jordanne managed to beat their record by 3 kg (6.6 lbs). However, Samantha Calhoun is still active and will definitely attempt to reclaim her past record.
