The last time we have the privilege of talking about elite 57kg powerlifter Maria Htee was back in June when she went head to head with Meghan Scanlon at the IPF World Classic Powerlifting Championships. And her performances on the big three lifts were impressive as expected which earned her an Open world record performance (472.5kg total).
But fast forward to the Commonwealth Powerlifting Championships and Htee set a world record in the squat and total with a 178.5kg squat and 473.5kg total which isn’t far off from her June performance. And by the same token, she surpassed Meghan Scanlon’s record squat of 178kg. Her lifts from this past competition were … 178.5kg squat, a 97.5kg bench, 197.5kg deadlift, and a 473.5kg total.
And you can watch her epic performances from this past weekend below…
Htee had a minor injury which prevented her from completing her third bench press attempt but she had a great performance nonetheless.
Check out her last training session before the Commonwealth Games which is just one of her posts leading up to the competition so there’s no shortage of progress updates on her end…
Maria Htee is an exciting competitor and we could all agree that we’re looking forward to what she brings to her next powerlifting meet. Htee will no doubt continue to improve and be a force to be reckoned with in the 57kg category.
