A note from Dean Limb on this contest

We had lifters from Medford, Sisters, and as far north as Hillsboro show up to the meet. Including a couple of fellas from Medford that will be starting USAW clubs here shortly. So I am very excited about that. It was also big for our struggling community to be able to get people from out of town to see what a nice facility Klamath Falls has

This report would not be complete without a special note on Sarah Bertram
Being the head ref for many years I have watched Sarah lift many times
I have never seen Sarah look stronger on her attempts on her 1st 3 great snatches
She decieded to take a 4th attempt at 90kg which would tie her LWC Record
Sarah suffered a bad dislocation of her right elbow on that lift
I will post this email she sent to her coach Tom Hirtz less than a week later
"I'm feeling good, didn't get sore much. I did an hr workout at 4 today. One arm sn, one arm press, some Ab work, hypers, squats
with about 40kg with that padded bar. My arm exercises, iced several times! No pain, still taking ibuprofen. Swelling is a bit better! It felt good to sweat:)"
Sarah, hope to see you back on the plateform soon
Next LWC Contest will be the Heavy Athletics Club Weightlifting Championships
