On Saturday June 20th Coach James, Tim Lee, and Jennifer Freytag represented Albany CrossFit at the first ever American Weightlifting Federation’s National Championships!
This was Jennifer’s first meet and she had an exceptional day! She competed in the Women’s 75+KG Weight Class, Snatched 114# (52KG) for her last attempt, set a new Clean & Jerk personal record at 156.2# (71KG) and totaled 123KG. Jennifer finished the meet with a Bronze Medal in her weight class beating numerous other competitors!
Tim competed in the Men’s 94KG Weight Class had been working hard preparing for this event and improved his numbers drastically from his first meet this past April. He set a new competition personal record at 174# (79KG), a lifetime Clean & Jerk personal record of 205# (93KG), and a new record meet total of 172KG. Just minutes before his session was to start Tim had completed his warm up lifts and was ready to go. Unfortunately, he received notice that there would be an unexpected 20 minute delay. Tim demonstrated great mental toughness and ability to stay focused, hit many of his warm up lifts again and then went to work on the big stage when it was his turn to lift.
Coach James was not messing around at this meet. He set a new competition personal record Snatch at 165# (75KG) and then just barely missed a lifetime personal record of 185# (84KG) – no doubt he will hit that weight soon! In the Clean & Jerk he successfully lifted 220# (100KG) and missed the Jerk on later record attempts. He finished the day with a 175KG Total.
Coach James is extremely proud of how well Jennifer and Tim performed at the meet and looks forward to seeing them through many more in the future!
