USA Weightlfitng National Championships
The Nation’s Weightlifting Championship took place right here in Dallas Aug 13-16. CrossFit Wylie managed to qualify two athletes for the largest championship meet in USAW’s history!
Erik Alejos, who has been struggeling through a shoulder injury for the last 6 months, lifted in the 77kg/169lb weight class, and fought through his issues to Snatch 109kg/240lb, and Clean & Jerk 133kg/293lb for a 242kg Total. This was well under his potential, but a very successful and impressive outing considering the situation. Erik is getting his shoulder operated on and we are looking forward to seeing him stronger than ever very soon!
Jourdan Delacruz, who relocated this summer to train full time as a resident of the Olympic Training Center in Colorado made a successful return to her home state, hitting PR’s in the Snatch, Clean & Jerk and Total, for the best meet of her short career. Lifting in the 53kg/117lb weight class, she Snatched 75lk/165lb and Clean & Jerked 92kg/202lb for a 167kg total, good enough for 6th place against the best lifters in the country.
Jourdan will also be representing Team USA in the Youth Pan-American Championships on September 17th!
Sticking with the topic of weightlifting and competition, we have more and more people participating in our weightlifting program, so as you’ve likely noticed, we decided to rearrange a bit, adding a third platform and giving the gym more usable space. Not sure why we didn’t change it earlier, I really like the new layout!
This new space is not just for weightlifters! Anyone can use it, especially if you are doing the extra work outside of a normal class.
