I started working out with weights in 1993 but didn´t start competing in powerlifting until 2001. I did squats and bench press right from the start but didn´t care about deadlift, so today I have to pay the price for my stupidity since my deadlift pretty much sucks. But I´m trying... I´m very glad that I´ve come so far in my career in such a short time, and have had the chance to meet and lift against so many good and nice lifters from all over the world. I hope that I´ll be around for a while and stay away from injuries as far as it´s possible. I was the first lifter in Europe to officially register a 300 kg bench in the EPF record lists, the European affiliate to IPF. After that, things have really gone well for me, adding four Worlds and two European superheavyweight bench titles to my merit list. In full powerlifting I still have a long way to go though… But I blame it on my lousy deadlift :
