On June 22, 2017, four athletes from CrossFit Rugrats, after qualifying earlier in the year, headed to Atlanta, Georgia for the 2017 USA Weightlifting Youth Nationals!
Competing CrossFit Rugrats were:
- 13-year-old Timothy Davis in the 62kg division,
- 13-year-old Kylie Strehl in the 58kg division,
- 11-year-old Isiah Boarman in the 35kg division,
- and 11-year-old Mallory McClure in the 31kg division.
These athletes have been training very hard, some days twice a day, for this competition! At the end of the day, CrossFit Rugrats had a national champion, Timothy Davis, who got gold in the snatch, gold in the clean and jerk, and a gold medal in total.
Kylie got a bronze in the clean and jerk and fifth place overall, Isiah with a bronze in the clean and jerk and fourth place overall.
And Mallory McClure placed sixth in the clean and jerk, fifth place in snatch, and sixth place overall!
As coaches, we are super proud of our athletes and how hard they have trained to represent our community!
