Ian Morris, 17, a defensive lineman for the Park City Miners, just broke the squat record for his age and weight class at the FitCon Powerlifting World Cup in Lehi.

The Park City High student squatted 683 pounds in the 275-pound weight class, breaking the previous record of 661 pounds.

Another Park City resident, Jordan Moon, recently spoke with ABC4 about a physical feat he plans to achieve – running across the country.

Moon tells ABC4’s Emily Clark that he plans to average 72 miles a day and break a record of completing the run in less than 42 days.

“I’m healthy, I’m alive, and I’m going to push myself,” Jordan Moon explains.
