David Webb Sets Two World Records- Powerlifter Was On A Mission

ORANGE BEACH, ALA.- David Webb was on a mission. The quest began months ago with the encounter set for October in Orange Beach, Ala. where he was among hundreds participating in the International Powerlifting League North American Championships.

His personal mission was to own world records in one or more of his powerlifting events.

“I put in a lot of hard work and getting to the point where I knew I accomplished part of my mission was an awesome and cool feeling,” said Webb.

The 64-year old set a new world record in the 75kg- 60-64 masters age division in both the deadlift and overall total weight from the three different lifts. In the deadlift, he set the new mark on his second of three lifts with a weight of 374.79 pounds. In his third left, Webb broke his own world record with a lift of 380.3 pounds. Combined with squat of 286.6 pounds and his bench press of 237-pounds, Webb gathered in his second world record with a total lift of 903.9 pounds. His total mark beat the previous world record by nearly 81 pounds.

His four marks also set new Alabama State Records.

“I had no miscues in any of my lifts and I’m still a little short of the world records in both the squat and bench,” said Webb, who works on Redstone Arsenal as a research scientist contractor working for the University of Alabama-Huntsville (UAH). “My personal goal was to hit the ‘900-Club’, which I did with my world record.”

The 5-foot-8 Webb lost weight to accommodate the lower weight class from his previous 165-pound division. “My goal was to drop weight, but not lose power,” he added. Webb and his wife of 27 years, Nancy, live in the area of Monrovia-Madison. This mission is complete, but new missions within the sport of powerlifting await.
