    World record

    Please correct my translation lnto English.

    Title: Russian sportsman pressed a barbell three times as heavy as he and broken the world record had been kept for 32 years.

    Note: Russian powerlifter Andrey Sapozhonkov broke the word record had been kept since 1986 to press a barbell of 272.5 kg in weight category below 90 kg.
    Previous achievement was owened by American athlet Larry Danaher. New record the Russian athlet set without special equipment. In 2018 Andrey set world records twice pressing 265 and 270 kg barbell, but
    overcame the border of 270 kg first time at competitions.

    Thanks.

    You could also say: world record for 32 years and three times his own weight

    Re: World record

    A Russian weightlifter lifted a weight three times his own weight?

    Yes he does. Bench pressing is easier than continental pressing or doing clean and jerk or snatching. Note he has lifted without doping control.
