Steve Mann of purepowerlifting.com in Pennsylvania hosted the 2015 USA Powerlifting Raw National Championships. Final on-line registration count was 1,147. According to the results of the original count, 990 showed up and competed. Wisconsin had good representation across thirteen divisions with 34 members. I hope you were able to watch on the Purepowerlifting.com YouTube channel, the videos are still available.
As one of the many on the officiating crew, I was able to see many great lifts from one of the best views in the house. With four platforms, multiple days and sessions, I also missed many of the Wisconsin lifts. Going through my personal Facebook page along with that of the USA Powerlifting Facebook group, I find the feeds full of news of competition. In the thirteen divisions Wisconsin earned 7 – 1st places, 4 – 2nd, 5 – 3rd, 2 – 4th, 2 – 5th, 2 – 6th, 2 – 7th, 1 – 8th, 1 – 9th. Take a look at the names, individual lifts and places on ’15 USAPL Raw Nationals Wisconsin Results.
The photography crew at the contest was top-notch. Take a look at the pictures online.
With another weekend of members doing well in competition at the national level and hopefully hungry for more, I look forward to the next one. Congratulations to all Wisconsin members.
