Salt Lake City: Courtney Yamada-Anderson, 48kg, Cassie Smith, 69kg and Kollin Cockrell, 105kg, competed at the National Championships July 18th to the 20th and came away with great results.

 Cassie (Arbor CrossFit) started things off with a 66kg Snatch and a 93kg C&J for 159kg Total and a 16th place finish. All three marks are new personal bests and her 93kg C&J is a new Idaho State Record.

Courtney (Idaho Weightlifting) followed up going 50kg in the Snatch, 73kg in the C&J and 123kg for the Total and a 13th place finish.

The C&J and Total are new Idaho State Records.

The final session, Sunday evening, saw Kollin, coached by Dan Fischer and Joe Leatherman, work together to turn a 6th place finish in the Snatch (140kg) and a 4th place finish in the C&J (183kg) into a BRONZE MEDAL in the Total.

 Kudos to all these athletes and their coaches for representing themselves, their clubs and Idaho so well.
