The Athletic Lab weightlifting team sent two members to compete in the United States Masters Weightlifting National Championships in Salt Lake City, Utah. Long time member Barry Myers brought home a gold medal in the 67kg weight class. Myers is no stranger to the medal stand having won multiple National and Pan American Championships and even once claiming a World Championship at the Masters Weightlifting World Championships in Rovaniemi, Finland.
In Salt Lake City, Barry totaled 158kg total (75kg snatch, 83kg clean & jerk) in the 67kg / 60-64 year age division. The meet brings together the top masters competitors from around the country. Congrats to the ageless Barry Myers.
