Rob Nikoleychuk had a dream competition at the 2019 GPC Nationals May 11 and 12 in Edmonton. He returned to Fort St. John with five-first place finishes at 178lbs (full power, squat only, bench only, deadlift only and push and pull).
He also set 12 national records, two world records, and won the Best Overall Lifter award for the weekend.
He now has the world record in squat only in both the open and submaster class with a weight of 628lbs.
His other final weights were a lift of 446lbs in bench press and 550lbs in deadlift.
