UNIVERSITY NATIONALS 2016
What a great weekend at this year University Nationals with the SENSE Gym Family in New Orleans, Louisiana ! We had a great time in one house, supported each other in competition where overall we did pretty well. Check out our instagram @sensegym for more videos our lifts!
Josh finished 1st in 105 kg division in the U25 competition. He hit a PR 187 kg, and 195 kg clean and jerk, to give him a new PR total of 345 kg. Look for some records to be broken at this upcoming American Open. This National meet was also by far, Dr. Wong's (105) best meet. Coming into this meet, he was feeling strong, well rested and more confident than he has ever been, and his lifting on the platform showed it. Expect for new personal best numbers soon. Sayuri (53) hit 54kg/72, although she didn't have her best meet, it was only her second one with SENSE gym. We are pushing for more so expect big weights to be made soon. Julie (63) hit an easy snatch opener at 64 kg, but the rest of the day didn't go as plan. She will continue to train as always and get back onto the national stage again. This is only her first year of training! Brendon Chau (85) best lifts at National University Championship was a 107 kg snatch and 122 clean and jerks. David (105+) lifted a nice meet PR total of 262 kg. He ended up with 115 kg snatch and a PR 147 kg clean and jerk. He has been working on his jerks and it is paying off!
