Elite #12 Chris Baeta
Updated: Apr 21
Chris Baeta Diablo has had a rich tradition in the 105 lb division for our female competitors. Before our 105 who went on to become one of the all time Master’s greats and before our 105 who went on to become one of the all time Open greats… was Chris Baeta, our first Elite at 105. Chris paved the way for our female competitors as well as all women in the Northern California Powerlifting Team, showing that strength comes in all sizes. A notable characteristic of Chris’ competitive career is that she did her best lifting into her 60’s. She came very close to realizing her dream of a 300 lb squat and 300 lb deadlift with best lifts of 286 squat and 281 deadlift.
