The 2023 IPF World Classic Championships finished on June 18, 2023, after a week of non-stop world record-setting performances in St. Julian’s, Malta. One of the most well-known athletes in the field was France’s Prescillia Bavoil, a former 63-kilogram world champion, who moved into the 69-kilogram class.
Bavoil’s performance in the heavier weight class was one to remember. Not only did she score gold by a comfortable 16.5-kilogram margin over runner-up Marte Kjenner of Norway, but along the way, Bavoil set a new IPF world record raw squat of 211.5 kilograms (466.3 pounds).
