Yenny Alvarez is a new Pan American record holder!
Our ambassador Yenny Alvarez did something amazing last week. She won 3 gold medals in Pan American Championship and set a new continental record in snatch in the u59 kg category. She lifted 102 kg on the snatch, which is really nice result. She did 124 kg in clean and jerk and her total was 226 kg. Both results gave her a gold medal. We are really happy, that we can support Yenny on her way and believe, that she will hit some other records in our weightlifting shoes Anta.
There were some nice results in different categories as well.
For example snatch from Angie Palacios (Ecuador). She set a new Pan American record in category u71 kg with a 113 kg snatch.
The greatest result among women showed us Neisi Dajomes from Ecuador in the category under 81 kg. She set a new Pan American record in Snatch with 120 kg and in Clean and jerk with 143 kg. Her total was a new Pan American record as well. (263 kg)
We witnessed a new junior world record in clean and jerk, in the category under 61 kg from American Hampton Morris, who hit 162 kg on clean and jerk. His dominant result in clean and jerk gave him a gold medal in total as well, when he beat Arley Calderńa from Cuba.
Miguel Suárez set a new Pan American record with 142 kg in clean and jerk in his category.
Absolutely dominant was Gustavo Maldonado from Colombia, in the category under 89 kg, when he hit 172 kg in Snatch and 210 kg in clean and jerk. Both numbers were new Pan American records. His total was 382 kg and it was a new Pan American record in his category as well.
Another great competition is behind us and we are looking forward to World Championship, where we are expecting great results from all athletes.
