After an interesting night of Volcanos and Black Ash Raining down on us we were still able to lift. The volcano has affect several of our athletes leaving today as the airport is closed until Monday. We have been trying to check the airlines but we need a little help with this matter. Glen has been checking on it. The hotel is not going to kick everyone out of the rooms. I will check my email as often as I can.
On another note we still had to lift today. Sarah Bertram lifted today in a very tough weight class with many Olympian’s competing for gold. Sarah snatched 85, 88 and just missed 90 kilos and finished 4th in the snatches. In the clean and jerks Sarah hit 104, 107, and missed 109. It was the guttiest clean I have ever seen. She is one of the toughest most intense athletes I have ever been around. I wish all our girls have as much fight in them as she has in her. She finished 7th in the clean and jerk and 6th overall. Here is the results from the class.
1. Leidy Solis COL 102 122 224
2. Norma Figueroa PUR 94 120 214
3. Liliane Menezes BRA 88 112 200
6th Sarah Bertram USA 88 107 195
