Cody Colchado

Athlete – Powerlifting
Inducted 2020

Born hard of hearing, Cody Colchado lost his eyesight after sustaining a football injury in high school. A lifetime member of USABA, Colchado is a 33-time world champion in powerlifting for both the able-bodied and disabled division. He holds 21 world records in the squat, bench press, deadlift and total for IBSA, IBPP, WABDL, WPA and USAPL, and has earned 12 best lifter awards. He has represented USABA eight times as part of Team USA. Colchado was inducted into the World Association Benchers and Dead Lifters Hall of Fame in 2012, and in 2015 he was the first American to become the Strongman for Disabled Champion at the World Championships in Iceland. He is also a three-time national champion in track and field. “When I lift weights, I visualize all the people with disabilities who I’ve met over the years,” Colchado says. “I hear their voices and they lift the bar with me.”
