In the month of March we typically look forward to spring which represents bouncing, start of something new, new beginnings, progress, blossoming of new things, birth, new life and business. The USA Powerlifting Wisconsin team is excited to announce our newest team member, Jordan Whipple as co-chair. Jordan and Tonya, current state chair, are working together to maintain our awesome competition structure for the members, current and future. Please enjoy learning a bit more about Jordan .
Jordan has been a USA Powerlifting (USAPL) member and athlete since 2012 and like so many in our state, she started in the Wisconsin High School Powerlifting Association (WHSPA). In 2018 she became a certified USA Powerlifting official and has been very active at numerous competitions in all of the various duties, including meet director of the 2019 WHSPA State Championship 500+ athlete sanctioned USA Powerlifting competition spanning five platforms and 2.5 days. In her role as the meet director she has worked closely with not only Tonya but many coaches and volunteers from all across the state and saw first-hand just how much of an impact the powerlifting community has on so many people across the state. She loves being able to introduce new lifters to USAPL and wants to continue to work and build the USAPL community here in Wisconsin and beyond.
To quote Jordan ‘I have fallen in love with the opportunities and community USAPL has introduced me to and want to share that passion with others. I look forward to the co-chair role, working with Tonya and to learn more about the organization and also to give back at a higher level to a sport that has given me so much.’
Please welcome Jordan as the new co-chair of USA Powerlifting Wisconsin.
