7 kilos away from a New American Record

Sarah Robles is 7 kilos away from setting a new American Record in the Clean & Jerk.  She will be breaking an 8 year old record set by 3x Olympian Cheryl Haworth back in 2005 at the World Weightlifting Championships.   Pictured here Cleaning 155 kilos at the 2013 Senior National Weightlifting Championships in West Chester, Ohio.  Every time Sarah lifts she comes closer and closer to those numbers set by the Hall of Fame Weightlifter Haworth.  “It has been our goals to go after the Records since Sarah starting training with me.” Coach Micela states.   He continues by saying, “It would be one more step closer to our ultimate goal of winning a medal at the World Championships and Olympic Games”.  No US Woman has finished higher than a Bronze Medal at the World Championships.  Robles can be the first.  This October Sarah Robles will compete in Poland to determine if she can reach those high standards.
