Lifter of the Month: Emily Burchett
by Al Myers
The USAWA Lifter of the Month for January is Emily Burchett. The only USAWA event in January was the Dino Gym Challenge, in which Emily took first place honors over two VERY GOOD & SEASONED lifters – Tressa Brooner and Mary McConnaughey. This was Emily’s first USAWA meet, and is the FIRST TIME any lifter has ever been lifter of the month after their first competition! Emily is extremely talented and with a little more USAWA experience could be become a future Overall National Champion.
