Landerite lifts on the national stage

Landerite lifts on the national stage

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." [image: Hawk lift.jpg] #county10 #news
