    Coan's best result in a drug tested international competition is 1,035 kg (2,282 lbs) in the 100 kg weight class at the 1994 IPF Senior World Championships.[5] establishing a new world record at the time. Even though serving a lifetime ban from the IPF for doping, today Coan is among some people still acknowledged and regarded a legend in the world of powerlifting and spends much of his time mentoring young lifters coming into the sport.[3]
     
    Coan's best single ply lifts:
    Squat - 1019 lbs (~462 kg) Bench press - 584 lbs (~265 kg) Deadlift - 901 lbs (~409 kg)[6] raw by today's standards with only singlet and belt       Total: 2463.6 lbs (1117.5 kg)
