2010 Women’s Powerlifting Nationals

23 May

This weekend was the Women’s USA Powerlifting Nationals in Ohio. Right now my goal is to make it there next year. I have to lift a total of 796lbs to qualify. I estimate I have about 80lbs to go. At this point it seems doable. But to WIN Nationals that would be another thing. The girl who won my weight class lifted a total of 1,139 lbs!!! Holy cow!! Sandra Sebastian did a Back Squat of 429lbs, bench of 247.5lbs and a deadlift of 462lbs. That is just crazy to me.

One woman, who is a hero to me is Sioux-Z Hartwig-Gary in the 114lb class took home yet another National Championship in her class. She is the 2003 World Champion and now 14 time National Champion. AND she is a Master (40+). I can only hope to be like her.

Congrats to all the girls who competed this weekend and good luck to those going on to Worlds!!! I hope to see you next year on the platform!!
