Kate "The Flying Squirrel" and Jeff G. both competed at the PWA's 2016 Max's Gym Open on Saturday, and both lifters provided some drama and an entertaining session! Squirrel nailed her opening attempt for snatch and then had a PR clean & jerk attempt of 79kg/174lbs well over her head but just couldn't quite find the lock-out. Jeff went 4 for 6 in his attempts, including a competition PR snatch of 95kg/209lbs and competition PR clean & jerk of 120kg/265lbs (with a close attempt at 125kg/276lbs) - not too shabby for a first meet back in over a year!
Great work, lifters! We're looking forward to seeing some more big numbers this Fall as the gym looks ahead to the 2016 CrossFit Liftoff in early November (more info on that in the coming weeks)!
