Frickey joined an astounding 650 competitors from 16 countries and 42 states for the event, and faced off against 23 competitors in two of the 198-pound weight class divisions.
Snagging fifth place out of 14 lifters in the men’s open division was pretty amazing, but winning the world championship in the 40 to 46 age group with his 465-pound benchpress was what set Frickey apart from his other competitors.
He is currently ranked at No. 18 in the world in his weight class and beat out men from Ecuador, Guatemala and Finland, and even set a new Louisiana state record with his performance.
Frickey is the single father of two teenage daughters, Jessica and Sierra, both of whom attend Hahnville High School.
