On Jan. 30-31, 2021, Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, New Jersey, hosted Revolution Powerlifting Syndicate’s (RPS) North American and New Jersey Championships. Everyone that was in attendance got to witness a lift that may have historic implications.
Jimmy Kolb competed in the single-ply equipped division and only took part in the bench press portion of the meet. He actually skipped his opening attempt due to lack of time being ready. The second round of lifts (Kolb’s first actual lift) was where he achieved his potentially historic mark. Kolb managed to complete a lift of 1,050 pounds (476 kilograms) that received three white lights from the judges in attendance.
