OMG Face.

August 29, 2011

This is CC.  We’ve been working together for the past 6 months.

This is her breaking a JR PWA record after breaking it minutes earlier.

Yesterday we traveled to Cotati, CA for the annual Redwood Empire Championship held in La Plaza Park.  Outdoor meets are usually fun, but this one is especially fun due in part to the beer, wine, and BBQ concessions available to the spectators.  This is a pretty laid back meet with pretty much every club in Northern California in attendance, but with a relatively small amount of lifters actually lifting.  Everyone pretty much goes to hang out.  Good times.

Anyways,  after CC snatched 61 on her 2nd attempt.  I went over to the score table to declare her third when the announcer informed us that she had just broken the JR PWA snatch record in her weight class.  Having never broken a record in anything before, I looked over at her like this:


I regained my composure and then declared 64 for her 3rd attempt, which she buried easily.  She went on to clean and jerk 80kg. for a PR and qualified for the American Open.
