The Prettiest Women of USA Weightlifting

48 kgs Stacy Suyama 2009 World Team member
I roomed with Stacy once in 2009 for Pan Ams. She's a very sweet girl.                          
53 kgs Melanie Roach 2008 Olympian
Known best for her comeback story and being a mother of like 4 kids, (one being autistic) and having a gorgeous smile every time she lifted.  
58 kgs Rizelyx Rivera 2009 Pan Am Team member
Rizelyx is known for her fun and zesty personality. She's a stylish single mom!
63 kgs Natalie Burgener 2008 Olympian
Natalie is an awesome training partner with a beautiful smile. She gives the greatest pep talks.
69 kgs Danica Rue 2010 World Team Member
Danica  was a two time Jr. World Team member who pursued a law degree. After taking that much time off, she came back at the 2010 National Championships and kicked booty qualifying for Worlds. Beautiful and exciting to watch lift.
75 kgs Cara Heads 2000 Olympian
Cara is as nice as they come. I love her hair and pretty much anything she does with it. Another girl with a breath taking smile
75+ kgs Rachel Hearn 2004-05 World University Team member/USAW Athlete Representative
Rachel is a bold, sassy, super. She's hands down the best dressed super in the U.S. I think she was voted the best hair-do at a meet one time. Haha.

As you can see, you can still lift weights and be beautiful. These women are beautiful at any size, shape, or color. I've said once, "Strong people are beautiful people." 'Aint that the truth?!

Very "pretty" post ladies! :)

I'm a CrossFitter that's just beginning to compete in Olympic weightlifting. I just started attending practices, and my coach is sendng me to my first competition on September 11 -- we'll see what happens! :)

Love the concept of your blog and can't wait to see what you post next. :)

I agree to all the above - the most gorgeous and strong women of the world are weightlifters! Great blog ladies. I would also submit Maegan Snodgrass 69kg Snr lifter. Beautiful inside and out - seen here in center with coaches and training partners.!/photo.php?pid=4817248&fbid=433491166869&id=77607441869

I know Rizelyx. She used to train where I train in Puerto Rico, before she went to the US.
