This weekend was all the hype for GPA Worlds 2014 in Sydney, Australia. Unfortunately, it was almost all hype no substance because a lot of the big boys whom we've grown to love and admire weren't able to live up to the hype.

The talent pool for this meet was out of this world. Literally almost ALL of the best lifters in the WORLD of Powerlifting were up against each other on the same platform. Here's a list, although I know I am leaving quite a few out:

  • Dan Green
  • Brandyn Lily
  • Eric Lilliebridge
  • Ernie Lilliebridge Sr.
  • Sam Byrd
  • Konstanin Konstantinovs
  • Andy Bolton
  • Benedikt Magnusson
  • Kirill Sarychev
  • Misha Koklyaev
  • Chris Duffin
  • Phil Harrington
  • Andrey Malanichev
  • Zahir Khudayarov

Highlights from the video below:

  • Andy Bolton attempted 405 kgs but failed off the floor
  • Benedikt Magnusson won by pulling 420 kgs / 924 lbs but it was a sketchy lockout according to me
  • Misha Koklyaev tried to best Magnusson and attempted 422.5 kgs but lost his grip at the top and the bar slid off on one side
  • Konstantin Konstantinovs pulled 400 kgs and did his signature celebratory flexing
  • Something you will notice is that a LOT of the big boys couldn't just pop the bar off the floor: they HAD to learn to grind it right from the beginning. Those that could grind succeeded and those that couldn't bring themselves to grinding out the rep just failed.

Clips in the video:

  • Benedikt Magnusson - 420 kg/ 926 lbs
  • Misha Koklayev - 410 kg/ 904 lbs
  • Andy Bolton - 417.5 kg/ 920 lbs
  • Konstantin Konstantinovs - 400 kg/ 882 lbs
  • Kirill Sarychev - 390 kg/ 860 lbs
  • Konstantin Pozdeev - 310 kg/ 683 lbs
  • Andrey Malanichev - 300 kg/ 661 lbs
