The Golden West.

November 5, 2014

I’ve been MIA recently due to 1) not having internet at my apartment 2) being approximately HELLA busy.  I’ve just gotten around to uploading the videos from this weekend onto my computer and should have it up on the youtubez by the end of the week.

For those of you who are curious what me and the gang have been up to, last weekend was the annual Don Wilson Golden West Open.  This year it was hosted by our buddies at California Strength.  We had a huge weekend.  This was the last opportunity for Nick and Jake to make the American Open qualifying total.  They made it.  Now they just need to wait it out and see if they’re actually going.  I also have a JR 69kg female that I’ve been helping prep for her first meet and hopefully qualify for JR Nationals next year.  She crushed the total and had she made her last attempt, she would’ve made the American Open total as well.  Needless to say I was impressed.

Also, two of my Masters athletes signed up for the Masters Nationals next year!

The team is coming up and doing big things.  I couldn’t be more proud . . . and busy.

Here’s a couple photos taken by our friend, Sam V.

Sick "triplestension" brah.  Jen had a huge day, snatching 70 and clean and jerking 92.  Both PRs.

Rick walked away with a 110 snatch and 140 clean and jerk.  His best in comp before this was 98/125.
