Lifter of the month: Barry Bryan
by Al Myers
There’s a reason I’ve been waiting to announce the LIFTER OF THE MONTH for the month of September. Due to the low number of meets during September, I decided the lifter of the month should be the lifter that won BEST LIFTER of the Delaware Valley Postal Meet, and I’ve been waiting on the final meet results. So the congrats for winning the lifter of the month goes to Barry THE BOMB Bryan!!!!
I am so glad to see Barry get back involved in the USAWA. I had a great visit with him at the Presidential Cup a couple of months ago. I know alot of the younger guys in the USAWA don’t remember when Barry was competing in the USAWA during the early 90’s. He was “a force” to be reckoned with!!! He was the overall BEST LIFTER at the 1990 USAWA National Championships against a very tough field of lifters. However, there’s a price to pay for lifting heavy weights, and Barry incurred a few injuries as a result which lead to him not competing for several years. But it looks like he has put those injuries aside – and IS BACK TO WINNING FORM!!! Congratulations Barry for winning the LIFTER OF THE MONTH for the month of September!!!
