Rapids youth lifters cap off season with nationals

Four Grand Rapids athletes competed at the Youth Weightlifting Nationals held June 25-28 in Minneapolis. It was a huge event with more than 600 competitors throughout the United States. This was the largest event in USA Weightlifting to date. Each athlete had to compete and qualify for this event by achieving totals in the Snatch Lift and the Clean and Jerk lift set by USA Weightlifting. This is done by entering sanctioned USAW meets throughout the calendar year.
