Vegan powers to state record

Vegan powerlifter Nick Squires has broken the State record for deadlift in his home state of California.

Competing in the 100 kg, Open age group category, Nick lifted 295 kg (650.36 lb) to beat the previous record of 287.5 kg.

Leaving with the Gold medal for Deadlift and Silver for total (Benchpress, Squat and Deadlift), Nick came close to even greater things as technical errors failed some lifts including a squat 20lb above his previous personal best.

Nick turned vegan in 2014 after working in dog rescue and developing empathy for all animals. Since turning vegan he has won two large powerlifting meets and competed at the Drug Tested World Championships.
