Default TRIPLE bodyweight squat at 13

Hey I thought some of you guys might appreciate this. My 13 year old athlete Harrison squatted 200kg at 66.7kg bodyweight.



I posted this on another forum and it became a 15 page debate with people telling me he needs to squat low bar. I tried to explain that he is a weightlifter (105 snatch 131 clean and jerk) and that we were just doing a powerlifting meet for fun but they weren't having it haha.
