Spring Olympic Weightlifting Meet Recap!

Saturday was the Roots Spring Oly Meet and it was a huge success! Over 40 athletes from around the state came and competed on the platform. It was also the debut of Roots’ new competition barbells and reordered flights.

A big thanks to all of our volunteers who worked tirelessly throughout the day making the competition run smoothly and without issue. We couldn’t do it without you!

Another big thank you to our sponsors: 
The Cup for providing delicious high-strength coffee for the lifters and volunteers. They have been the sole coffee provider for all of Roots Oly Meets and we love them! SFH for having a booth set up at the meet and for providing prize packages for the winners. You can find their awesome products sold at Roots pro shop. Suerte for providing prize packages for the winners. They make great tequila and they are even nicer people. Thanks guys! Life of Riley Foods for donating their amazing nut butters for prizes. 

 

The Roots athletes made a great showing at the competition. Here are some highlights:

  • Megan Isherwood took 3rd overall in the women’s division with a 132.5 snatch and a 160 clean and jerk setting several personal records in the process. Nice job Megan!
