Ray Williams aka Optimus Prime currently holds the IPF Totals and Squat record and is the 2 time IPF world champion (Superheavy Weight Division). He is originally from the small town of Demopolis, Alabama but currently lives in Mississippi. Ray has dedicated his lifting career to his kids, sons Tae'Sean and Daniel, and his beautiful daughter (RIP). Lastly, he is a competitor to the core, and he loves to go head-to-head with some of the best lifters on the planet in the IPF. He gives all glory to God because the machine that he is was built by the hands of God. Ray has goals to be the best, and if his body allows, he will be.
