Yes, Dana competed in the first time in 4 years. She did a bench only meet in 05, with a 215 shirted bench @132!

She lifted Sunday @ 132. She bench 170 raw, and deadlifted 310. She has only been deadlifting for about 6 weeks.

This meet was an unsanctioned bench/dead meet. it has been held here in Pittsburgh for the last 10 years. The rules are not strict, it more just for fun and just a chance to lift heavy weight.

Here are her lifts, sorry I just have links to the flip phone videos.

Now we just need to get you in a full meet.

Here are her deadlifts, 290,310

Here are her benches 145,160,170
