Oly Meet Recap!

The Roots Fall Oly Meet took place the Saturday before Thanksgiving and was a huge success!  Forty-eight competitors lifted in the biggest weightlifting meet Roots has hosted. 16 Roots athletes represented with great technique, speed, and strength.

This was Roots’ first meet that utilized the Sinclair coefficient which equalizes weight between lifters, as well as the Malone-Meltzer coefficient which equalizes age for anyone over 31.

Here are the highlights from Roots athletes:
