Considered one of the greatest pound-for-pound Strongwoman athletes, Rhianon Lovelace is dominating the 64-kilogram weight class. Her most recent outing was at the 2022 Clash of the 64’s, which took place on May 14, in Plano, TX. Rhianon was crowned as the champion, but also claimed a new Axle Deadlift World Record of 515 pounds (233.5 kilograms) in the lightweight division.
Event two of the 2022 Clash of the 64’s was the ‘Last Woman Standing Deadlift’ and it incorporated the axle barbell. Rhianon Lovelace won the competition with a 495-pound (224.5-kilogram) pull, but decided to load 20 pounds more and break the World Record on her next attempt. Rhianon only used a lifting belt and a pair of straps to help her set a new record. Considering that she competed in the 64-kilogram weight class, Rhianon Lovelace deadlifted at least 3.6x her bodyweight.
