Trisha Parker, who wrestles as Jordynne Grace, won a powerlifting competition in Georgia on Saturday.
She tweeted out the details on Saturday afternoon, July 24, 2021:
Broke all three state AND national records for all three lifts. 1st place AND best overall lifter. Thank you so much for all the support. I love you all so much. This is just the beginning.
Parker, a former Impact Wrestling Knockouts champion, was competing at the WNPF Drug free Powerlifting event in Fayetteville, Georgia, at the gymnasium at Christ Church at Whitewater. She was in the 165 weight class, weighing in at 161.8 pounds.
The records are specific to WNPF Drug free Powerlifting.
Her friend and frequent tag team partner, Rachel Ellering, was there, and noted her commitment just to get there: “Today’s the day! @JordynneGrace has her powerlifting meet today and I am AMPED! Woke up at 4:30am to road trip with my mom to be her cheering section! She’s going to kill it, you guys! I might cry I’m so proud of her!”
Parker thanked Ellering: “This girl driving six hours to sit around and watch me lift heavy shit”
Throughout the competition, Ellering was posting details:
