A big congrats to Coach Hillary and Kate "The Flying Squirrel" for their terrific performances at "The Alameda Weightlifting Comp" in San Jose on Sunday!  With the loudest cheering section in the building, both athletes put up some impressive numbers on the competition platform.  Hillary went 5/6 in her lifts, highlighted by a PR total of 170kg/375lbs and HUGE PR clean & jerk of 100kg/220lbs which tied the PWA Masters Record!  This was a longtime goal for Hillary and we're thrilled that she was able to check it off of her already impressive list of lifetime athletic achievements.    

Kate went 3/3 on her snatches, ending with a huge PR of 65kg/143lbs - a MONSTER lift at a bodyweight of 52kg.  On her final clean & jerk attempt she easily stood up with 75kg/165lbs but just couldn't quite lock out the jerk - the lift would have given her the qualifying total for the 2016 American Open Championships.  We're confident she'll smoke that lift the next time around, just as she's done in training - and we're so proud of her gutsy performance!

A big thank you to all the supporters in the Arena Ready cheering section who came out to watch our athletes compete - a few of them are not in the picture below (including myself, as I was apparently taking Bo out for a stroll, heh), but we were grateful for your shouts of support and good vibes!
