Performance One Weightlifters take home some medals

Today several Performance One Advanced Sports Training Weightlifters competed at the Infinite Strength Open in Scottsdale, Arizona. Alexa DuMity started the day off lifting in the 53 kilo Weight Class. She Snatched 53, 56, and just missed 59 kilos. In the Clean and Jerk she made 64, 67, and just missed the Jerk with 70 kilos. Both of her last attempts were New Personal Record Attempts. Alexa is progressing each and every time she touches the bar. Her Totaled of 123 kilos qualified her for the University National Championships to be held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in September.

Next up was Morgan Leigh Huppenthal competing in the 63 kilo class. Morgan Snatched 63 kilos, missed 66 on her Second Attempt, and came back to make 66 kilos on her Third Attempt. The Clean & Jerk is Morgan’s specialty and it showed today. She opened with 80 kilos, made 85 kilos on her second, and when for a New Personal Record of 90 kilos on her Third Attempt. This gave Morgan a New Clean and Jerk and Total Personal Record! She like Alexa will be competing at the University Nationals.

Last up was Keith Weitz lifting up a weight class in the 77 kilos. Keith Snatched 95 kilos on his opener, missed 100 on his second attempt, and came back to make 100 on his third attempt.
