Oly Lifting Clinic

By: 321go Leave a Comment

On Wednesday, December 28, CCF will be hosting an Oly lifting clinic with Jackie Berube. Jackie, a current member of the US Weightlifting team, was an Academic All-American gymnast at the University of Wisconsin – LaCrosse.

She also competed for one year on the varsity men’s wrestling team in the 118 pound weight class. After college, she wrestled on the USA Women’s National Wrestling Team and won a silver medal at the World Championships in 1996.  In 1998, while working as a strength and conditioning coach at Northwestern University, she shifted her focus to weightlifting, which became an official sport for women at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia.  Berube ruptured her quad tendon when a weight fell on her leg just prior to the 2006

World Weightlifting Championships.  Days later she traveled to the Dominican Republic where she competed and finished 11th. Berube had surgery to repair the quad rupture shortly after arriving back in the United States and returned to international competition the following year when she placed sixth at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

We are looking forward to having Jackie share her expertise with our clients. The clinic will begin at 5:30 and enrollment is limited to the first 20 athletes who register. There is a $15 cost to participate in the clinic. Please email Mitch at mlyons@centervillecrossfit.com to sign-up!

There will be no 5:30 class on Wednesday. Those that are in the 5:30 class will need participate in the Oly Clinic or come to the 4:30 or 6:30 classes.
