On June 27th, the Gym Laird Powerlifting Team competed in Springfield, Ohio for the NASA (Natural Athlete Strength Association) National Championship Meet. 13 women participated in the powerlifting meet, the biggest team Jim has ever coached for one meet. Many of the women are seasoned veterans, but for some this was their first time competing! After a long training cycle to prepare, everyone did an amazing job and achieved a PR (Personal Record) in at least one of their lifts! Along with PR’s, many State and National Records were also made during this meet!

Before the team takes the spotlight, I was asked to mention Emily Hinkson.

She ran numbers for all 13 competitors and had to make some quick on the fly judgement calls! Thank you for all the your help 🙂

Also a big thank you to Suzanne for organizing all the numbers and figuring out all the state and national records.
