After a deep breath, Orhii situated himself under the barbell as he packed his back to prep for the lift. Wearing a lifting belt, wrist wraps, and knee sleeves, Orhii walked about the barbell, braced, and quickly dropped into the hole.

Orhii’s ascent appeared smooth, suggesting that if he needed to call for more on the barbell, he could have. After re-racking the weight, Orhii cracked a smile with a spring in his step, knowing a new record was secured.

Orhii went eight for nine in attempts. His full performance is below.
