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!
Highland High School Sophomore Schuyler Allen Snatched 80 kilos during his training on Thursday afternoon at Performance One Advanced Sports. Schuyler went on to also Snatch 85 kilos and a close attempt at 87 kilos. Schuyler also is on the Varsity Wrestling Team and is a Competitive Olympic Weightlifter where in 2016 he finished in the top five in the Nation for his Age and Weight Class.
On Friday May 5th, 2017 Matthew Herbert Dead Lifted the heaviest weight in the 2017 Arizona Special Olympics Power Lifting State Championships. Matthew is trained by Tempe Special Olympics Power Lifting Head Coach Joe Micela.
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.
