Women’s Nationals was a BLAST! As the lone Nebraska woman represntative I did my best getting a PR Competition total of 750. I weighed in the lightest 63kg (58.9) gal out of the 22 lifters and by wilks that finished me 10th. In my divisions I placed 4th in the Open and 5th in the Masters.
Robert Keller of USAPL has been directing and hosting quite a few of the National meets in Florida and now it is time for some WORLD action. Master’s Worlds will be hosted in Orlando Florida the end of September with Nebraska lifters again representing. This time they though Steve and Bill will be representing the US!
Dan Goodwin lifted in the Masters 80-84 division. WHAT AN INSPIRATION! Finishing 1st in the 83kg (weighing 75.6) and totalling 295kg. Dan proves that you are NEVER too old to lift.
Our State Chair Bill Sindelar lifted in the Master 60-64 120kg (weighing 115.5) and his total of 687.5kg placed him 1st and a spot on the world team in September. He had a great day going 7 for 9
Steve Davenport made his debut as a master lifter in the 120+ kg 40-44 division. He had an exceptional day missing only his second squat and totalling 920kg. Very excting for him as this will be his first time on the Master’s World Team as well.
“I have competed since December 1998. Masters Nationals was simply the pinnacle of my powerlifting career. The venue, the atmosphere, and the camaradie simply cannot be matched anywhere. I didn’t really focus on winning, but rather on lifting the best I could under the stricktest of conditions. Lay aside whatever excuses you have, get qualified, and step onto the national stage. You won’t regret. Special thanks to our state chair Bill Sindelar for his encouragement and coaching.” ~Steve Davenport
As you know traveling is pretty expensive yet the priviledge to lift at a national or world status is a huge lifetime honor. These guys that are heading to Master’s Worlds in Florida could use all the help they can get. So if you are interested in showing your support and sponsoring them in anyway please contact them or us and we can maybe work together to help out.
Again if you have any Nebraska USAPL news to share or pictures please contact me so I can get the word out.
