Master’s Lifter Doug Clouse Snatched 110 kilos during his Friday June 30th, 2017 training session at Performance One. Doug has been chasing this number for quite sometime. Perseverance and determination has paid off. Great job Doug!
2017 Olympic Day was a huge success at Performance One! We were very fortunate to have 2x Olympian John Matthews come in and talk to the athletes about sacrifice, dedication, and goal setting. Mr. Matthews was a Greco Roman Wrestler who was on the 1976 & 1980 Olympic Teams. He was a 15 time National Champion in the Sport of Wrestling. We all appreciate the information on his great journey with our team.
Youth National Silver Medalist Nathan Cerwinske Back Squats 190 kilos 1 hour competing at the 2017 Youth Nationals. When asked why did he back squat after the competition, Nates reply, “we always back squat after heavy snatches and Clean & Jerks.” Great answer by a great young athlete!
14 year Old Lulu Arneson Front Squatting 90 kilos (198 lbs) under the watchful eye of Coach Joe Micela. This was a New Personal Best for Lulu as she is finishing up Track Season and also preparing for the Youth National Weightlifting Championships next month in Atlanta Georgia.
2017 Junior National Weightlifting Champion in the 90 kilo class Becky Walker hitting a Hang Snatch from Above the Knee with 75 kilos for three consecutive reps. Notice the control that Becky demonstrates as she sets up for each rep. She doesn’t hastily rush into each rep. Becky sets her upper and lower back and lowers the bar with precision. These are very important attributes to have as a lifter.
Big congrats to two very special ladies,Tram Tran and Becky Walker. Both ladies lifted this past weekend at the 2017 University and Under 25 National Weightlifting Championships in Gainsville, Florida. This was Tram’s 2nd National Competition. She went three for three in the Snatch making 61, 64, & 66 kilos for a New Competition Personal Record. In the Clean and Jerk she missed 74, made 75, and missed 79 kilos (we’re still working on the Jerk). She finished with a 141 kilo Total and top of the B Session of the 58 kilo Class. Tram’s 66 kilo Snatch finished her 3rd in the University Division but due to an Administrative error was not awarded the 3rd place medal in the snatch at the time of the awards ceremony. She has been insured by USAW that the matter will be taken care of and she will receive her much earned 3rd place medal. We are very proud of Tram and all the hard work she has put into training for this event. Coach Joe believes that with more time Tram can compete on the Senior National Level very soon.
In the newly added 90 kilo class Becky Walker went 2 for 2 by wining the Under 25 National Weightlifting title to go along with her National Junior Championship she won earlier this year. Becky Snatched 79 kilos missed 81 twice. In the Clean and Jerk, Becky made 104, missed 108, and then made 108 on her third attempt finishing the day with a 187 Total. Becky is a rising star in the sport of Weightlifting and with time and support she can be wining medals at the Senior National Level and making Senior International Competitions within the next couple of years. All of us at Performance One are very proud of both ladies.
Performance One Weightlifter Dennis Tan made the Junior Pan American Weightlifting Team and will be representing the US in Ecuador on May 1-8th, 2017. Dennis was a 2016 Youth World Team Member and placed 3rd at the 2017 Junior National Weightlifting Championships. Since coming to Performance One Dennis has improved his Total from 275 kilos to 305 kilos. We are looking forward to what the future may bring.
