Over the weekend, some of the biggest news to take place in the Grip World for several years went down in a small town called Crooksville, Ohio.
A relative newcomer to the sport off Grip, Kody Burns, has officially broken the overall World Record in the Two Hands Pinch, with a lift of 270.52-lbs!
The reason I stress overall record is that Kody actually shattered the previous marks that were set in several other weight classes as well. In Grip Sport, if a competitor is competing in one of the lower weight classes and lifts a weight that breaks the record in the heavier weight classes, the weight stands for the upper classes as well.
I believe, on Saturday, Kody was competing in the 93-kilo bodyweight class (if this is proven to be incorrect, I will modify this later on). What this means is the Kody is now the World Record Holder in the 93k, 105k, 120k, and 120k+ classes.
