This is a new era, boys and girls. An era where national records are unofficially broken at exercise competitions, and at bro-sessions around the globe.
On Saturday afternoon, in Melbourne Australia, Andrea Miller hit a 105kg/231# Clean and Jerk PR to win event two at Schwartz’s Challenge. Andy’s last exercise comp was the 2013 Aussie regionals, and she’s finally healthy after a long list of injuries and illnesses kept her out of the 2014 season. She spent about four months training with the New Zealand WL team (her home country), and was heartbreakingly close to making their Commonwealth Games squad.
I don’t think her heart is broken anymore – this is the new unofficial 69kg New Zealand National Record in the Clean & Jerk.
Also, I know I’ve already posted this, but my “bro-session” reference above was specific. Lacey’s sorta 85kg/187# PR Snatch from Friday was apparently only 5kg under the Canadian 58kg National Record. When it happened none of us had any idea how close it was.
It’s a new era.
