Joey Smith got his 800 lb. bench press on his final attempt yesterday at the SPF/WBPLA North American Championships in Knoxville, Tn. He showed a lot of guts and determination after missing his 770 opener and holding his 800 second attempt at or at least very near lockout for what seemed an eternity. The judges didn't feel it was locked. Joey regrouped from the exhausting attempt to come back and get it on his 3rd! Great job of refusing to stay on the mat Joey! Way to come back for the knockout!

Joey was in the 308 class but weighed in at only 286 lbs. It was a pleasure to watch him compete as well as all of the other competitors!
