SAVANNAH -- It was a day of mixed reviews for the Georgia IronDawgs at their season opener over the weekend at the Paul Anderson-Howard Cohen Weightlifting Center in Savannah. The 'Dawgs came home with plenty of medals, as well as three "Best Lifter" awards and national and world records, but were denied the push/pull (benchpress/deadlift) overall team title at the inaugural American Powerlifting Committee (APC) International Irondawg Cup. The meet featured competition in push/pull as well as bench press- and deadlift-only classes in both equipped and raw (unequipped) divisions. "Unfortunately, we had one of our starters not get in a lift in the bench press portion of the push/pull meet," IronDawgs bench press division captain R. Garry Glenn said. Glenn the dean of the 'Dawgs at this contest at the age of 59 established world records for push/pull for a win in the raw master's men's 55-59-year-old, 90 kg weight class with his bench press of 142.5 kg/314.16 pounds, deadlift of 150 kg/331.69 pounds and total of 292.5 kg/644.85 pounds. On a fourth benchpress, he increased the record to 145 kg/319.67 pounds. He dropped his third deadlift of 170 kg/374.78 pounds when he tweaked his left hamstring. "I haven't done a competitive deadlift in years, mainly because of my left hip surgery. That one is mostly titanium now," Glenn, of Oakwood, noted, "but our head coach and chief trainer Mike Kidd put together a push/pull team and wanted me to train to get back into it.

"I'm very proud of all of our team members," said IronDawg Benchpress Team captain, R. Garry Glenn of Oakwood. Glenn himself got in his opener of 140kg / 308.64 pounds before missing his next attempt at 172.5kg / 380.29 pounds by majority decision. "I and one judge thought I had the weight locked. Two judges thought I didn't," he said with a shrug.
