Mac and Jan – Iron Game History – April, 1995

In December and January of 1977, following her world record deadlift of 451 l/4 pounds, Jan Todd, my wife, received quite a bit of media coverage throughout Canada, where we then lived, and in the U.S., culminating in an invitation to appear on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show. So, although it wasn’t easy to get away because we had a farm, Jan felt that the Carson invitation was an offer she couldn’t refuse since the show was seen by an average audience of close to twenty million people.
