Week 2018.04.16

The 2018 Omaha Strengthlifting Challenge is in the books, and it was a great meet! Despite the snowy weather (in April!), we had our largest showing yet for a USSF meet, and it was great to see all the PRs that were set this past weekend. As always, a huge thank you goes out to all of the judges, spotters, loaders, officials, and those who helped set up and tear down - we could not have done this meet without you. Thank you so much!Upcoming events:
