Strongwoman Rhianon Lovelace Sets U64 Axle Press World Record of 101 Kilograms (222.6 Pounds)


Rhianon Lovelace’s pound-for-pound prowess may be unmatched in the current catalog of dynamic strong women. The British powerhouse relies on a foundation of apparent pure strength and makes it a habit to achieve great things any time he has a barbell, Atlas stone, or general heavy gear inside him. In one of the first significant competitive displays of community strength seen from Lovelace in 2023, he continued his established pattern to surprise.

On January 22, 2023, Lovelace got the 101-kilogram (222.6-pound) Axle Press during the 2023 Kaos New Year Push/Pull 2023 contest at the Kaos Strength Gym in Preston, England. The amazing feat is a all-time U64 (64-kilogram weight class) World Record. More than this, it shows that after a calendar year of 2022 in which Lovelace sprinkled important achievements in many competitions, the athlete is still pushing full steam ahead to carve his name at the top of a record list wherever possible.

Lovelace seems to understand her status in the modern strongwoman sphere. As he prepares for another productive year of competitions, the athlete has a brief summary of his Axle Press record in a post on the lift on his Instagram profile.

“Three weeks into 2023, and we already have a world record,” Lovelace wrote. “A lot of plans this year, just at the beginning.”

A two-time U64 World’s Strongest Woman (WSW) champion (2018, 2022), Lovelace hasn’t held back about a full slate of big strongwoman fights of late. According to Strongman Archives, the athlete can boast three out of four podium finishes in the tentpole WSW main event. The only time Lovelace fell short of a top-two finish was during her WSW debut in December 2017.

Outside of the parameters of WSW, Lovelace made 2022 a lot in all circumstances considered. Last May, the athlete broke the British raw deadlift World Record with 241 kilograms (530 pounds) from the 2022 British Powerlifting Union (BPU) contest. She followed that achievement by breaking the all-time strongwoman deadlift World Record (282.5 kilograms/623 pounds) at the 2022 Berkshire’s Strongest competition. Finally, in September 2022 – almost a month and a half before Lovelace captured his second career WSW championship – the competitor broke the Axle Deadlift World Record with a weight of 261.5 kilograms (576.5 pounds) at the time in 2022 Arnold Strongman (AS) UK.

With this latest Axle Press notch in his lifting belt, it looks like Lovelace is back on hiatus in 2022.

Few of Lovelace’s peers could possibly match what he did in the gym and in sanctioned competition. In the coming months of 2023, it seems inevitable that he will continue to climb the mental heights when it comes to displaying impeccable displays of power and will.
