A very strong young man, for his age and weight. Nice little spot for powerlifting as well. Of course, if you pick your spots right...almost anyone can hold a world record in some federation...so the world record thing means nothing. However, he is a strong kid...good for him.

Seems to be mature for his age too. It is great to see some of these young lifters getting exposure, which in turns gives our sport much neede positive exposure. And they are handling it with a great deal of maturity too. Amanda Harris is one that comes to mind who like Jordan is a teen lifter and was recently interviewed by the local television station in her home town while doing great things on the platform. Lift..., what else?

Yet anyone can say they're a wrestler or mma fighter. They may not be able to say they participate in the pro ranks just as not any powerlifter can say they compete in the WPO.

"What the heck are you talking about?!" I think he is trying to state that there are too many feds and it isnt very hard to find a fed where there are very low or no records in certain divisions.

I know Jordan personally and let me tell you he's a great guy. When I need help he's always there to give me advice and mental training. You may think I'm lying but I'm telling the truth.

Hopefully, he sticks with powerlifting as he gets older and continues to break records.
