Ed Coan Appreciation Thread
Ed Coan (born July 24, 1963) is an American powerlifter. He has been described as "the greatest powerlifter in the history of the sport" and the "powerlifting equivalent of Michael Jordan."
Ed Coan has set over seventy world records in powerlifting. He became the lightest person to cross the 2,400 lb. barrier in the powerlifting total (a sum of three lifts: the deadlift, bench, and squat). He set an all-time powerlifting record total at 2,463 pounds, even though at the time he was not in the heaviest weight class.
Ed Coan's best result in an international, and drug tested, competition is 1,035 kg (2,282 lbs) in the 100 kg weight class at the 1994 IPF Senior World Championships. This at the time was a world record.
Ed Coan's best single ply lifts:
Squat - 1019 lbs (~462 kg)
Bench press - 584 lbs (~265 kg)
Deadlift - 901 lbs (~409 kg) 
Ed Coan's best competition lifts as a 220lb lifter:
Squat - 961 lbs Bench - 584 lbs Deadlift - 901 lbs
The squat and Deadlift attempts were as follows: 959lbs and 898lbs. After the competition, the plates and barbell were weighed And the weight came out to be 961 and 901lbs
Note that Ed Coan's lifts were completed under IPF Rules. Single layered suits and standard 2 meter knee wraps.
Ed Coan has failed drug testing through the IPF three times. The first time he was temporarily suspended in 1985 for the use of Deca-Durabolin, an anabolic steroid .
In 1989, Ed Coan was once again suspended due to a positive drug test.
In 1996, at the IPF Men's Open World Championships in Salzburg, Austria, Ed Coan tested positive once again and was issued a lifetime ban from the IPF. Because this positive drug test occurred in a competition in which he placed first, his name and results have been retroactively removed from the 1996 results.
