2017 Western Florida Open

Friends:
There were many powerful performances in this year’s Western Florida Open. Records and PR’s were shattered. Gerry Guenther’s team from Iron Core Powerlifting  had an awesome day as did Stronglife Tampa Bay’s team. Ty Conyers continues to improve with every outing and was joined in the teen division by another up and coming superstar Kiara Akuna. Robert Sheehan had an impressive performance in his platform debut in the 148’s. The 165’s were loaded as well with Darius Conyers leading the way.

Eric Corbitt lit up the platform in his first competition but ran into another monster in the form of Peter Pires from Iron Core who put up a huge 1450 pound total. Gage Takacs dominated the 220 pound class with a 1655 pound total and had a 700 pound deadlift on it’s way when a hamstring issue thwarted his effort. The 242’s were loaded as well with Julian Alessi coming out on top in the seniors. Josh Whalen and Ron Squires had some impressive lifts in the push / pull division. Mike Strom had an impressive platform debut in the 275 pound class. His potential seems limitless. The biggest deadlift of the day belonged to Malcom Small “the gentle Giant’! Malcom demolished 700 on his third attempt deadlift. Matthew Cormier and guest lifter Donnie Kiernan made some very impressive lifts in the 308+ category.

This event could not have taken place without the collective efforts of many dedicated individuals. Tom O’Donnell is truly an ambassador of our great sport and not only shows up at all of Raw United’s events but helps out all organizations whenever the need arises. Brian Highnote and all of the crew from Blessed Iron Barbell took control of the platform and did a tremendous job. We at Stronglife Tampa Bay, Stronglife ministries and Raw United cannot thank these individuals enough. Also lending support were Tim Burns, Virgil Diaz, Rick Hoover, Ryan Yarcho and Ian Velez.   Thanks again.
