Our very first in-house Olympic Lifting Meet was super fun! Six lifters competed, getting the feel for what an Olympic lifting competition is like. Each lifter completed six lifts: three Snatches and three Clean and Jerks. The goal of each lift is to successfully lift your heaviest weight by your third attempt. Despite the seemingly low number of reps for each, this type of competition takes a great deal of mental and physical fortitude to perform well. Judges Marcus, Jon, and Alison applaud all the lifters for their efforts!
Each and every athlete gave their best! Because of the limited number of lifters and how the general rules of competition work, there were no winners, although each person got a sweet prize. Ask them what they got!!
Thanks so much for making our first in-house meet a success!!
