105 kilo Weightlifter David Meltzer won the Gold Medal in the 60-65 year old age division at the 2014 Master’s Pan American Championships in Toronto, Canada. An ASU Physics Education Professor by day, David Snatched 84 kilos and Clean & Jerked 111 for the Gold Medal. David’s teammate at Performance One Joel Barnett also brought home some hardware. Joel competed in his first international competition and looked like a Pro. Despite some technical difficulties on the officiating side Joel kept his composure and battled through. He snatched 73 kilos and Clean & Jerked 84 kilos to take home the Bronze Medal. We are very proud of both lifters. They have trained extremely hard for this event and we can see bigger lifts in the coming future.
Here the video’s of David’s lifts. Joel will be coming soon.
