How I Almost Missed The Signs : My First Competition

I’ve always thought I was strong in a gym setting. Lifting with friends shooting for PRs.

I recently wanted to test myself, so I did my first weightlifting meet.

My goal was just to do well, considering I had no real expectations or understand how a meet was even ran.

I went 6/6

Snatching 122/268
Clean & Jerk 152/335.

I had the heaviest clean and jerk and heaviest snatch. Winning the overall as well.

My coach and I looked up the current national records for my division the snatch was 120.

It feels great to say I “unoffically” broke a national record by hitting that 122.

And a total that would place me 2nd in the nation!
