Federico Ruiz, a 17-year-old with a very bright future in this sport, put on a show at The IPL Tribute Meet. Coming straight out of High School where he dominated the competition in the 220’s, Ruiz was invited not only due to his outstanding numbers but his young age. At 17 years old Ruiz Squatted 683 in wraps setting a USPA National Record in the 242 16-17 junior class. Ruiz also set a National record deadlifting 655. His total at 1674, set the national junior record at 242 as well, not only can he put up numbers, but his story into Powerlifting is equally as interesting.
