I've read many comments over the years that effectively say this "She's not even snatching bodyweight." This is true. I looked at the last two major international competitions and it's not just me. The girls that are, however aren't snatching astronomically more than their bodyweight. The top men are snatching 40-50kgs greater than bodyweight. Is it a testosterone deal? Is it greater skill or athleticism? I don't feel like much is known about the larger athlete, especially the large female athlete. What are your thoughts? Tag your expert friends.
With tears in my eyes after my snatches, I said to my coach, "I'm a World Champion in something." What an amazing
year/year.5 this has been! 1.) Undefeated 2.) National/Pan American/World Champion 3.) I've made every single lift in competition since the 2016 Olympics.
Looks like I'll be sticking around a little longer too...I haven't broken those durned American/Pan American records yet.
The story of Esther was one that motivated me at the end of this year. When I had doubts: "... and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?"
