Andrew S, Kai H, and Ann-Marie D represented Foundation Barbell and FCF this past weekend down in Tacoma.

Andrew S set personal records in his snatch, clean & jerk, and total.

Kai H also set personal records in her snatch, clean & jerk, and total.

Ann-Marie D returned to competition after a year off and took 2nd Place overall while qualifying for USAW Nationals next year.

No lifting shoes today, Andrew! You’ll need some running shoes or some softer training shoes for 1.5 miles you’ll be running.
