The lifter of the Month for the month of May goes to Dennis Mitchell – and for good reason. At the Heavy Lift Championships last month Dennis has accomplished something VERY FEW lifters EVER achieve. He eclipsed a milestone of competing for 70 years. That’s right – 70 years of active competition! In my book, that’s an amazing accomplishment and worthy of special recognition.
I first met Dennis at Nationals 10 years ago or so. Since then I have got to know him very well, as he is always representing the USAWA at national and international events. He has been one of the most loyal supporters of the USAWA since the organization began.
Congratulations Dennis on winning this months Lifter of the Month!!!
