Female Pirate Power Lifter and Senior Emili Oliver, earned the right to compete against the best in the State of Texas in the 2021 Power Lifting Championship held in Corpus Christi, Texas; and compete she did! With three successful lifts in the Squat, Emili came out of the first event in 2nd Place with her best lift of 425 pounds. The second event of the day, the Bench Press, was tough: she showed us how tough she was with a long-struggling fight to get the weight to full extension, on a personal best of 225 pounds, only to experience a bit of tough luck losing credit for the lift on a technicality. With a 35-pound set-back, she grinned and said, I've got this, and moved on to the final event of the day: Deadlift! She successfully accomplished her season-best, 320 pounds, with her second attempt. Emili then endeavored to make up for lost pounds from the Bench by undertaking 350 pounds on her third attempt. As the universe would have it, she came up a bit short, none-the-less,the Lytle Pirate Power Lifter earned bragging rights to being one of the top 12 lifters in the State of Texas in 2021! If you would, when next you see her, please feel free to CONGRATULATE this awesome young lifter on her Power Lifting accomplishment this year.
