And let's not forget that he pulled that 462 after a 396 raw squat and 253 raw bench --- That's downright worthy of praise. I too hope that I can still hoist the iron into my seventies... but to be this proficient would be more than I could hope for.

I know Gordon Santee and Bob Strange (not as well as I would like) and admire their accomplishments. Great lifters and great ambassadors for this sport! Congratulations and keep up the good work.
