All Time Raw Records And Boss of Bosses VI

Wed, 09/04/2019 - 22:21 -- admin
There have been many questions on whether or not the all time records set at Boss of Bosses VI would be accepted due to the event not being sanctioned. Lifters come and go and as time passes lifters are either new or quickly forget. So, lets back up about 11 years. In 2008 the Raw Unity Meet was formed and was the first raw unification contest of any significance. Eric Talmant and I decided that since there were no official all time "raw" records only equipped, that I would compile them to give the lifters something to shoot for. The all time American records were compiled and published FOR Raw Unity. After that year lifters wanted world records and I began to compile that which took a full year to discover and compile. The All Time Raw Worlds were now published For Raw Unity. Well they took off and raw lifting took off and now here we are today. The All Time World and American records were formed for an unsanctioned event in Raw Unity. Raw Unity was a contest to show case the best lifters under one roof without equipment and with out sanction so lifters from all feds could compete. RUM III show cased never before competitions like the USAPL's single ply champ Dave Ricks vs the APF's multi ply champ Arnold Coleman. This couldn't have happened if it had been sanctioned. So in conclusion, sanctioning doesn't matter when it comes to all time records as long as the basic rules of powerlifting are followed, and its a national or world event to showcase the best against the best. Its how it all started.......

AGREED BUT I STILL THINK YOU NEED AT LEAST 2 INTERNATIONAL JUDGES ON THE PLAT FORM TO MAKE IT AN ALL TIME WORLD RECORD. DOESN'T MATTER THE FEDS. THE JUDGES ARE FROM BUT THAT AT LEAST TWO OF THE JUDGES ARE CATAGORY 1.NOT SURE WHO DAN HAD BUT I KNOW THAT HE DOES FLY IN INTERNATIONAL JUDGES FOR THE MEET DUE TO SEEING LEE MARSHALL THERE ONE YEAR. JUST MY THOUGHTS!
