Monday, June 16
If you weren't watching this weekend the USA Weightlifting Youth Nationals we being held in Daytona Beach and ton of American records were broken in the process. Check out USAW's Facebook page for lots of videos of the meet. Lot's of kids from age 11-17 competed and the future of American weightlifting looks bright. Especially when you watch 14-year-old CJ Cummings snatch 118 kg (260 lbs.) and clean and jerk 146 kg (321 lbs.) to destroy every youth record out there, even for 17 year olds. Check out the video below of his third snatch attempt and pay attention to the speed. You have to be strong, but being really fast helps a lot.
