Powerlifting meets in July as well as an unofficial bench press meet, winning

first in each lift in his class as well as best lifter for his division in an

APA meet in Hilo where Gandeza competed in the Submaster division with presses

of 402 pounds, squat of 650 pounds, and a deadlife of 600 pounds. Gandeza also
