Episode 35 - Going to Miami: Drugs, Pan Ams, and the AO
5 days ago
JP and Anton discuss the new Lift Clean program and the American Open series 2 briefly, and deep dive on a discussion on the 2017 Pan American Championships. This year, the competition will be in Miami, FL USA. As we mention on the show, USA Weightliftlifting is making Weightlifting a destination sport. Some big name lifters, like Morghan King and Donovan Ford, won't be in action at the Pan Ams because they will compete at AO Series 2. We believe this is an advantageous strategy because they will be able to lift after knowing the numbers they need to achieve a higher ranking than their counterparts. Olympian Sarah Robles will be in action and she will fight for gold. She is a top medal prospect as well as almost every TeamUSA female athlete. Some of these lifters include Allyssa Ritchy, Jessica Lucero, Cortney Batchelor, Mary Peck, Mattie Rogers, and Ali Ludwig. The men's team is stacked with medal prospects as well. From the 85kg weight category to the 105+, Team USA can bring home hardware. Be on the look out for James Tatum, Colin Burns, D'Angelo Osorio and Caine wills to name a few. Stay tuned for great lifting and make sure to watch the competition live on USAWeightlifting's website.
