On September 11th & 12th, 2021, PFP hosted East Coast Gold’s Gold Cup. With over 70 lifters showing up to the showdown, the weightlifting meet was a big success!
A Big Thanks
We also want to thank our vendors for their support. Field Creative Media captured some incredible photos and videos of each lifter. We can’t wait to see the finished photos! Walter’s BBQ Southern Kitchen joined us on Saturday and provided delicious BBQ to everyone. Fit Aid, LMNT, LiftGenie, Nooma, Onyx Weightlifting Co., JNX Sports, and Betancourt Nutrition all provided products for the competitors to take home with them.
PFP wants to extend a big thanks to East Coast Gold, Pittsburgh Barbell Club, Fourteen Forty Strength, Columbus Weightlifting, West Virginia Weightlifting, Country Strong, Kilodelphia, Parable Weightlifting, Fortius, and all the unaffiliated lifters who brought the heat. Athletes, coaches, spectators, and volunteers all came together in a spectacular event.
A special congratulations to our best lifters, who brought home their own championship belts:
· Best Male Lifter: Luke Maclennan of Columbus Weightlifting with a 290 total
· Best Female Lifter: Jillian Seamon of East Coast Gold with a 214 total
In addition to the best lifters, other highlights included:
· East Coast Gold’s Rebecca Dublin who totaled 200 and qualified for Senior Nationals!
· On Sunday the team from PFP barbell made 39 out of 42 lifts!
Congratulations to all the lifters who joined us! Whether it was your first meet or just one of many, we thank you for your enthusiasm and sportsmanship.
Special thanks go out to the volunteers who helped our event run smoothly. We could not have done it without the marshals, judges, loaders, and everyone else who pitched in to help.
Lastly, we would like to thank Leo Totten and East Coast Gold. Leo’s work announcing, coaching, and facilitating was invaluable. PFP is grateful to him and to East Coast Gold for allowing us to host this event.
