How do these numbers compare to master's deadlift records in powerlifting?

Damn Nessa , your a horse. This was a lot of fun. Best wishes to Scott Olson, I hope you are recovering,

@Danny, hard to compare power lifters, they are bracketed by age and weight. At the 2010 Master National, the winner in my age and weight bracket pulled 473lbs or 215kg. I think Joel would be in the same bracket.

Terry, thanks for the shout out. Bicep is reattached. six months for full recovery...
Congrats to you and the rest of the masters!!! You were all awsome! You and Joel really knocked the dead lift out of the park, great job. It really hurt not to be able to finish with the rest of you guys!!
Good luck with your training. Hope I can be there next year.
Thanks again,
