Austin Olympic Weightlifting Success Story
Ryan has worked exceptionally hard over the past 8 months. He's spent a lot of time focusing on improving his flexibility and range of motion (the stuff that's not very fun or glamorous!) while trying to increase his strength relative to the olympic lifts. All that hard worked paid off this past weekend!
Ryan competed in the GrassIron Open - it was his first-ever olympic weightlifting meet, but he performed like a seasoned pro! He made all six attempts (which is no small feat, even for an experienced competitor) AND
he tied his current Snatch PR (85kg) and set a new Clean & Jerk PR with 107kg!
Ryan, congratulations on a very impressive performance! You had a fantastic day - and you certainly earned it! Keep doing what you're doing - the sky's the limit!*
