Terry Todd enjoys the distinction of having been our first Senior National champion in the Heavyweight class back in 1965. He was also the heavyweight National Powerlifting "Tournament" champion the year prior and would set 15 unofficial "world" records during his short powerlifting career. Before he retired in 1967, Todd would become the first lifter to officially post totals of 1600, 1700, and 1800 lbs in competition. His best official lifts were 720 squat, 515 bench, and 742 in the deadlift.
