I definitely agree with Sully that it was one of those lifts that could get 2 whites 1 red or 2 reds 1 white, but IMO it wasnt in the category "definitely not a good lift". I am happy for Ben he got that record and I think better to white lite slightly questionable lift like that than red light a definitely good lift a rob the lifter of a record (like what happened in WRPF with Aleksey squat, here: https:///r/powerlifting/comments/79o4i7/aleksey_nikulin_360_kg794_lbs_squat_wr_attempts/ ) while this abomination of a lift remains the official WR https:///r/powerlifting/comments/6tc8er/dallas_norris_new_all_time_world_record_squat/ .
Steroid use is on the rise in Australia. Recent figures from the Australian Crime Commission show that the number of steroid-linked arrests and seizures hit a record high in 2011-12. Data from the latest Australian Needle Syringe Program survey showed almost three-quarters of new needle drug users in NSW took image and performance enhancing drugs, predominantly steroids. In November last year, youth workers in Melbourne were reported as saying the number of illegal steroid users obtaining free injecting equipment is increasing, particularly among young men using late-night mobile services.
