Prescillia Bavoil experienced massive disappointment in 2022 when she was not allowed to compete at the IPF Worlds due to exceeding the limit for her weight class. However, she utilized the nagging feeling to prepare for the 2023 IPF World Classic Open Powerlifting Championships, which are taking place on June 11-18, in Valletta, Malta. So, having had an entire year to prepare, Prescillia came into the competition as ready as she could be. Consequently, she emerged victorious in the 69-kilogram weight class while also setting a new raw Squat and Total IPF World Records.
Wearing nothing but a lifting belt and knee sleeves, Prescillia Bavoil made easy work of 211.5 kilograms (466.3 pounds) to set a new Squat IPF World Record. She broke the previous record by 0.5 kilograms (1.1 pounds). Interestingly Bavoil also held the old record, having set it at the 2023 IPF Sheffield Powerlifting Championships.
Presicillia Bavoil seemed very comfortable while performing the 211.5-kilogram (466.3-pound) squat. She did not get stuck at any point of the lift, even starting to smile before locking out the massive weight.
Prescillia Bavoil did not want to take any chances with her bodyweight, so she weighed in significantly below the U69KG limit at just 65.25 kilograms (143.9 pounds). She almost had a perfect performance, going eight for nine on the attempts, missing only her final deadlift. However, if Bavoil managed to complete her final deadlift, she would have broken the World Record in that event as well.
