Friday night in Foster City, California Team Arizona Weightlifter Sarah Robles made the 7th and final spot on the 2009 Pan Am Women’s Team. Sarah, whom competes in the 75+ kilogram weight class went six for six on the night. In weightlifting terms that is a perfect day completing all six of her given lifts. Sarah finished with a 96 kilo (211 lb) snatch and a 126 kilo (277 lb) clean and jerk for a 222 kilo (488 lb) total. All were competition PRs (Personal Records) for Sarah. Sarah is Team Arizona’s most decorated female or male athlete. With only about a year of training under her belt Sarah has shown that she is going to be a dominate force in the 75+ kilogram weight class. Only three time Olympian Cheryl Haworth stands in Sarah’s way of solidifying her legacy in the sport. For more information on Sarah, Olympic Weightlifting, and training go to our main site at or
