Karlina Tongotea (76KG) Sets IPF Raw Squat and Total World Records at 2024 Sheffield Championships

Of the 24 athletes (12 male and 12 female) who competed at the 2024 Sheffield Powerlifting Championships in Sheffield, England, on Feb. 10, 2024, 14 of them broke IPF raw total world records in their respective weight classes. One of those athletes was Karlina Tongotea, the lone lifter in the 76-kilogram weight class.

Tongotea locked out a 226-kilogram squat on her second attempt to eclipse the IPF raw world record she entered the competition with by half a kilogram. Her third attempt jumped it to 230.5 kilograms en route to a new IPF raw world record total of 610.5 kilograms — 10.5 kilograms more than the world record at the start of the contest.

Athletes were ranked across weight classes based on how much their total was in terms of percentage to their class’s world record. For Tongotea, that meant she was competing against her previous 600-kilogram total world record.

While Tongotea’s eight-for-nine performance was one for the record books, eclipsing her previous world record by 10.5 kilograms, scoring 101.8 percent of the raw total world record, it was only enough for seventh place overall. That’s because the six athletes ranked above her actually broke their respective total world records by higher percentages.

Tongotea’s record-breaking performance was still met with a heavy prize purse. Athletes were awarded £5,000 bonuses for any world record achieved. Since Tongotea scored two world records, she left Sheffield with £11,750.
