Huge Congrats to our Olympic Lifting Coach Lincoln, for competing in the 2014 National Masters Weightlifting Championships this weekend. We are very lucky to have him on staff here at CFBT and couldn’t be more proud of him!
Lincoln competed in the 77kg/55-59 age group category. He went 3-for-6 on his lifts and won Gold as well as qualified for World Masters by his 5th lift. Worlds will be in in Copenhagen, Denmark this year.
On Sunday he coached two lifters. One lifter, Robby Ho, who was one of the first weightlifters he had ever coached from over a decade ago back when he lived in San Diego. The other lifter, Julio Laboy, he had just met that day, after a mutual friend threw out a request to help him out when his regular coach couldn’t make the trip. Julio earned bronze while Robby took silver, both in hard fought contests, Julio went 4-for-6 with a 75kg snatch/95kg clean & jerk while Robby hit 113kg and 130kg respectively. Robby cleaned 141 kilos (310 lbs. ) at a bodyweight of 82kg (182lbs.) but couldn’t quite get the jerk.
