Well guys, didn’t do so at on the National (Skatetown USA…) stage, missed my opening snatch 3x at 64kg, a weight I should put overhead easily (well, I did… then behind me. Oops.) Got all my cleans and probably the best jerk ever at 84kg, then forgot to lock my arms on the jerk at 87kg (didn’t realize it was actually overhead, I guess), which would have been a meet PR.

But I came off the platform every lift with a smile, because I LOVE this stuff and, shoot, I was at NATIONALS! The goal this year was to get there — goal accomplished. First National meet, first great experience of hopefully many. Now I’m just chomping at the bits to show them what I can do at American Open in December.

Do try and watch this weekend if you can, there will be some AMAZING performances!
