Lifter of the month: Dan Wagman
by Al Myers
The month of November was a busy one for me and sorta “flew by”. I just realized that I have someone who deserves recognition for the MONTH OF OCTOBER. His name is DAN WAGMAN and he is the 2012 IAWA World Championship OVERALL BEST LIFTER. Dan won this title the first weekend in October in Salina, KS at the 25th IAWA World Championships. It’s a “no brainer” if you win the OVERALL BEST LIFTER at the IAWA World Championships that you will win the USAWA LIFTER OF THE MONTH. After all – that’s the highest award any lifter can win during the course of the year in the IAWA.
Since then, Dan has competed in the Welcome Mat Record Day (results will be coming soon) and has made plans to attend my Dino Gym Challenge in January. As the new CHAMP of the organization – Dan has “duties” this year of making appearances at USAWA events and competitions. I know Dan is more than up for this!!!! Congrats Dan on winning the USAWA LIFTER OF the MONTH for OCTOBER, 2012.
