Barbell Strategy Members Competing this Weekend
Madeline, Mandi, Emily and Bre are competing this weekend at the Lord of the Lifts Super Total meet at Denver Barbell Club. This is a little bit of a novelty meet as it combines two disciplines: Olympic Style Weightlifting (snatch and clean and jerk) and Powerlifting (squat, bench and deadlift). Athletes will add their weightlifting total from Saturday to Sunday's powerlifting total for a Super Total.
If you want to come down and cheer us on, we start at 10am Saturday and 7am Sunday. Awards for both days should be done by noon. 601 W. 29th Ave. Denver, CO
Marlena Preigh, who is a senior at Fairview High School and runs for RISE Athletics club, will be attending her final Simplot Games in Pocatello, Idaho this weekend. Simplot is the premier High School indoor track meet in the country. If you want to tune in, you can buy a $12.95 one month "Plus" pass with RunnersSpace.com which will be streaming live coverage. Marlena is one of the top high school runners in the country so look for something special in her 800 meter race this weekend. She's already knocked 6 seconds off her indoor PR from last year at this year's Husky Invitational at University of Washington in January.
