Let’s put our hands together for Cara, who ranked 9th in all of Canada for the 63kg weight class!
We had a solid weigh-in (61.6), and an amazing warm-up. Everything was right on time, and looking solid in the warm-up room. While the first snatch didn’t go as planned, she nailed the next 2, hitting 73kg.
The hard part was over. Up next, clean and jerks. Same thing – warm-up was awesome. Missed the first lift. Made the 2nd (95kg). A missed the 3rd. But it still gave her a total of 168kg!
Once the dust settled, she finished 9th overall, and broke 3 NB records!
It wasn’t that long ago when I suggested to Cara that she try to qualify for Nationals. She’s certainly had her share of highs and lows. It was far from a straight path. And placing 9th in Canada has shown that dedication and perseverance can pay off. Can’t wait to see what another year under the bar will do for her.
