The lifter of the month for the month of June goes to Molly Myers! The lifter of the month was established to recognize an outstanding performance over the course of the month in USAWA competitions/events. Molly was awarded BEST OVERALL FEMALE LIFTER at the 2013 USAWA National Championships in Lebanon, PA. I consider winning Best Overall Lifter at Nationals as a “slam dunk” in consideration of the Lifter of the Month Award. Molly established 12 new USAWA records at Nationals (2nd most of any lifter at the meet) which included 3 new National Meet records. Her lifts were outstanding: 80 KG continental to belt, 70 KG one arm deadlift, 40 KG clean and press, 25 KG one arm snatch, 50 KG pullover and push, and a 92.5 KG ciavattone grip deadlift. Those are some BIG LIFTS for a girl who is only 14 years old!!!!
Congrats Molly on your lifter of the month award!!!! (your ole dad is proud of ya!)
