Lifter of the Month – Art Montini
by Al Myers
I’m a little behind on announcing the LIFTER OF THE MONTH so today I’m going to get caught up!
Looking back at October it was a “no-brainer” who the lifter of the month should be for the USAWA. It is none other than the IRONMAN Art Montini. Art represented the USAWA in Scotland at the IAWA World Championships early in the month, where on his 88th birthday, won another World Title. He followed this up the NEXT WEEKEND by hosting his annual Birthday Bash, which is now the longest running sanctioned meet in the USAWA. That’s TWO weekends in a row of competing, with one being an overseas trip. That’s deserving of LIFTER OF THE MONTH in my opinion!
