Who We Are

Strength & Speed Ratings was started in 1992 by Dale Harder for people curious to see how they stacked up with others in their age group. What were the records for people in their age group? What percentile would they be at in various events in their age groups? What about records for people of unusual size like who’s the fastest man that weighed over 200 lb? Who has high jumped the highest over his height? Who is the strongest pound for pound? Did you know that some men have lifted triple their bodyweights overhead in a lift called the clean and jerk? What is the historical evolution of world records—ex. who was the first man to pole vault 10 feet? 11? 12? …20?
