Hawk Cain (24 yrs old) likes lifting weights. The LVHS grad passionately puts in the hours and the work at Crossfit Lander
, Cain recently took
part in the Wyoming Weightlifting State Championship
at Frontier Barbell in
Cheyenne and to his surprise: He won his 85 kg (187 lb) weight class.
His lifts earned him an invitation to Salt Lake City for his first national
meet this past weekend: 2016 USA Weightlifting Championships. At the meet
Hawk was able to snatch 122
kg (268 lbs) and 150 kg (330 lbs) for a clean & jerk
. Humbly, he shared with us,
"I'm not really sure, but for my weight class that put me somewhere in the
top 15 nationally."
"What's next?" we asked the lifter. "Not really sure, I just got back from
the gym and my head's not getting a lot of blood right now. More training
and it's probably time to get a job."
