RECAP - 2014 AAU Junior Olympic Games Powerlifting
Competing in three lifts: Squat, Bench and Deadlift, athletes of various ages and weight classes took the floor to show off their talents in the 2014 AAU Junior Olympic Games Powerlifting competition.
Between male and female divisions, athletes ranged from ages 6-22 and lifted as much as 610 kg. (20-year-old Male Eric Boomershine) as their total weight on the day.
Over 25 World Records were broken during the kick-off event for AAU Strength Sports at the AAU Junior Olympic Games. Up next is Weightlifting, followed by the Combine and Feats of Strength.
Many athletes were medal winners, and even more walked away with personal bests in all of their lifts.
