Male powerlifter breaks female record by 210 kilos!

40-year-old Anne Andres is male. He claims to identify as a woman and has broken several female Canadian records in powerlifting. He holds records in the women’s deadlift and bench press. Over the weekend, he stole another record from female lifters.

“Andres appeared at the Canadian Powerlifting Union’s 2023 Western Canadian Championship yesterday, which was held at Brandon University’s Healthy Living Centre. Andres participated in the Female Masters Unequipped category, and beat out Michelle Kymanick and SuJan Gil for the first place award.

Andres’ total would have placed him amongst the top-performing male powerlifters in the entire championship had he participated in the men’s category.

According to a source who was present at the championship, Andres set both a Canadian women’s national record and an unofficial women’s world powerlifting record”. Watch here.

Female powerlifter, April Hutchinson, has spoken out despite being warned not to.

She is furious he has been allowed to compete and said many women had self-excluded or dropped out of the competition because of him. The sad reality is that has done nothing to dissuade the officials who allow him to participate. 

Outspoken women’s sport advocate and former swimmer Riley Gaines slammed the policy and the man who is stealing records from women. Watch here.

The only way we can quickly and effectively stop the erasure of women’s sport is to speak out and speak loudly. What is the point of having a women’s division if males can destroy it like this?
