Here's Sarahs' background in weightlifting: Christina McClure showed me the lifts during my 2003 Track Season. I was so sore I quit! The next year Rich McClure coached at my highschool and forced me to lift to help with throwing. I went to a few local meets in 2004 and 2005. Turns out I actually enjoyed competing. I decided after my throwing career, I'd like to compete full time. I threw for two years in college and I ended up switching over after track season 2008. I competed and medaled at my first Jr. Nationals in 2008 went to Collegiates on the same weekend as two track meets, and then Jr.Worlds. I decided to lift full time. I went to NMU for my first year of lifting. That's where I met the lovely Jessica! I then got accepted to the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center. I spent one year there, and now, I am currently in Arizona training at Performance One Advanced sports training.
Here's a training video of Jessica. Be sure to check out our youtube pages under "Our favorite Links!!!"
