18-Year-Old Malik Bernoussi Triolet Breaks 3 Sub-Junior IPF World Records


18-Year-Old Malik Bernoussi Triolet Breaks 3 Sub-Junior IPF World Records

Triolet gets what could be the first of many achievements on an international stage.

Malik Bernoussi Triolet has been a competitive powerlifter for just over four years. In that time, the 18-year-old French athlete has had his moments, but perhaps never one that put him “on the map.” That may no longer be an issue. 

During the 2022 International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) World Classic Sub-Junior and Junior Championships, Triolet broke three raw Sub-Junior IPF World Records in the back squat, bench press, and total in the 93-kilogram weight class. He also captured a competition personal record (PR) on his best deadlift.

These respective stats were enough to vault Triolet to first place in his class. The contest featuring other young competitors like Triolet took place in Istanbul, Turkey, from Aug. 27 to Sept. 4, 2022.  Here’s a rundown of Triolet’s top stats from his performance:

2022 IPF World Classic Sub-Junior Championships | Malik Bernoussi Triolet (93KG)

Squat — 282 kilograms (621.7 pounds) | Sub-Junior IPF World Record
Bench Press — 200.5 kilograms (442 pounds) | Sub-Junior IPF World Record
Deadlift — 292.5 kilograms (644.9 pounds) | Competition PR
Total — 775 kilograms (1,708.6 pounds) | Sub-Junior IPF World Record

Because Triolet’s new bench press record surpassed his previous mark, the French athlete is now the first 93-kilogram Sub-Junior IPF athlete to press at least 200 kilograms (440.9 pounds). Triolet’s past best bench press was a 193-kilogram (425.5-pound) mark from the 2021 European Powerlifting Federation (EPF) European Classic Powerlifting Championships.

Meanwhile, Triolet’s squat record exceeded Jaime Santillana Izquierdo’s previous world record by 8.5 kilograms (18.7 pounds). As for the staggering total, Triolet eclipsed Jack Hopkins, who logged a 752.5-kilogram (1,659-pound) total at the 2021 EPF European Classic Championships. 

Here’s an overview of some of the more notable results from Triolet’s career, who has only ever competed raw:
