This past weekend, New Zealand's Laurel Hubbard set new masters world records while competing at the World Masters Games in Auckland, New Zealand. Hubbard made a splash in March when she was the first transgender woman to represent New Zealand in weightlifting at the 2017 Australasian Championships. At that meet, Hubbard snatched 123kg/271lb and clean & jerked 145kg/319lb on her way to gold across the board and new New Zealand weightlifting records.


At the World Masters Games this past weekend, Hubbard again competed in the women's 90+kg in the 35-39 age range. She snatched 131kg/288lb and clean & jerked 149kg/328lb to set new masters world records in the snatch, clean & jerk, and total.


Here is the stream of her lifts. Her snatches begin at 44:20 and her clean & jerks start at the 1:47:00 mark:


Laurel Hubbard's transition from her previous life as Gavin to her new life as a dominant female weightlifter has been highly publicized and people from everywhere have expressed their opinions on it. Through all of that, the heads of both the Australian and New Zealand have shared their support for her and her performances.
