LEBANON, Tenn. — Georgia IronDawg Tim “T” Moon of Gainesville made it three wins in four weeks Saturday when he took the Equipped Benchpress title in the “Bash for Cash” put on by the Elite Powerlifting Federation.
Moon had established the all-time bench press records for Men 50-plus in the 275-pound weight class in both the Raw and Equipped classes in different meets in successive weeks with presses of 530-plus and 810-plus pounds respectively before taking a week off and then lifting again at a bodyweight this time of around 284 pounds.
He finished with 760 pounds, the heaviest bench of the day, after he failed to lock-out 815.
Some of Moon’s IronDawg teammates are expected to lift at the Georgia Games at the Iron Beast Gym in Gainesville Saturday, but Moon will not be one of them.
Moon, a 1982 alumnus of Jefferson High, is also a certified powerlifting judge and may be filling that role on Saturday.
