Cockrell Wins Bronze Medal at 2014 American Open Championships

Kollin's 2nd attempt @ 188kg

Washington DC: Kollin Cockrell, Boise Barbell Club, garnered in a Bronze Medal at the 2014 American Open Championships Sunday, December 14th.

Competing in the 105kg class Kollin got nervy on his opening snatch of 140Kg and missed it behind. He repeated the attempt for a success but then had a missed try at 145 and was 10th at the end of the snatches.

The original plan had Kollin opening his Clean and Jerks at 180kg and then finish with 190kg. The first attempt at 180kg went as scheduled but Coach Daniel Fischer had a different strategy moving forward. Calling for 188kg on the second attempt Kollin completed the lift without effort. The barbell then moved to a personal and state record 192kg. Again an easy clean followed by a flawless jerk moved Kollin to the Bronze medal in the lift and a 5th place finish in the total, with a final result of 332kg.

Congratulations to Kollin and Dan as this is their second Bronze Medal, in as many attempts, since joing forces in July.

Kollin captured the Bronze Medal, in the total, at this years National Championships.
