Space Gym has stepped up to the platform to help shoulder the load of strong man Carlos Petterson’s quest to break records at the 16th NAPF North American Powerlifting Championships set for Mexico City, Mexico next month.
During a simple ceremony on Tuesday, the Gym’s Manager, Lucas Matos presented a cheque to Petterson who holds several national and regional records, to help offset some of his expenses for the championship scheduled for August 2 to 4.
Petterson who lifts in the 93kg class, thanked Matos for the sponsorship while signaling his intentions.
The 24 year-old gladiator is the current holder of the Pan American Junior Deadlift and Total records, the Commonwealth Deadlift record holder as well as the South American Squat, Deadlift and Total records.
Petterson is in sublime form, earlier this month, he set a new deadlift record of 320kg and a new Total record for his division.
He now has his sights set on erasing the 93kg class squat record which stands at 303kgs as well as the Deadlift record while in Mexico.
