What do you know about Paul Anderson squatting 1200? Was it really 1200? I read your thing that said his big backlift was a lot less than previously thought. Did he go to parallel? I keep reading that he had witnesses, so I think that he did SOMETHING with a big weight that day.

I spent years studying Anderson's unofficial lifts, and

Iron Game History (U of Texas) published a three part

series detailing the results of my study, as well as a

book review of The Mightiest Minister (written by Strossen)

-the review by Dr. John Fair. I spoke to the man who owned the hotel where Paul lifted etc.

Witnesses? There is much confusion as to who witnessed

the event, how many witnesses etc. In one case a man that

Paul claimed was there taking photos, acknowledges that he

in fact was not there, was not taking photos, and did not

hear of the event until much later.

I do not want to get into much non-grip material here, but

will add that the weight of the silver dollar squat has been

reported by various sources as 900 to 1,200 pounds.
