6/27/2012 - KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss.  -- Fifteen Keesler members participated in Friday's American Powerlifting Federation event at the Triangle Fitness Center. Each participant completed squat, bench presses and deadlifts in four categories -- open raw division, equipped division and women's division.

Winners were determined based on the Schwartz/Malone formula which assigns a co-efficient based on the weight of the competitor. That co-efficient is then multiplied by the total weight lifted over the three events to provide the formula total. The person with the highest formula total is declared the strongest.

Open raw division

First place -- Austin Sutton, 81st Security Forces Squadron, with a formula total of 874.18 pounds.

Second place -- Justin Trott, husband of Charlotte Trott, 81st Inpatient Operations Squadron, with a formula total of 834.89 pounds.

Third place -- Barron Ramiro, , with a formula total of 736.95 pounds.

Equipped division

Overall -- Kasey Crowe, 334th Training Squadron, with a formula total of 872.24 pounds.

Women's overall

First place -- Shayna Sutton, wife of Austin Sutton, with a formula total of 579.64 pounds.

Second place -- Sunita Brathwaite, 335th Training Squadron, with a formula total of 463.10 pounds.

There were also two Keesler weight-lifting record breakers in the competition. Justin Trott broke the deadlift record in the male 165.4-181.9 pound class with a weight of 565.2 pounds.

Shayna Sutton broke the squat and deadlift records in the women's 114.7-123.5 pound class with weights of 209.4 and 275.6 pounds respectively.
