The 2 Calpian Junior lifters that competed this past weekend performed basically as perfectly and great as we all expected!!! We are extremely proud of you both!
Sarah Skinner won Nationals Sunday morning at the 69kg weight class!!! Say hello and congratulate another Calpian and Washington State National Champion! She kicked ass today and had way more in her! Big lifts to come real soon! She made lifts of 74 in the snatch and 91 in the clean&jerk which was a personal best and a total of 165kgs which was also a personal best meet total…Sarah cleaned a huge personal best of 95kgs and just barely missed the jerk for what would have been a huge PR! Sarah is also the first Jr. National Champion the Calpians have had in 12 years since Hunter Hazen won it at the 105kg weight class!!! Things are really starting to look up for the Calpians!
And congrats to Daniel Wiitanen on being the only Youth in his weight class and placing 5th overall while taking the Silver medal in the clean and jerk! Daniel had a personal best Clean and Clean&Jerk with 147kgs and a personal best Total of 254kgs!
