Meet Recap: Back to back silver medals at USAPL Raw Nationals in the 48kg class for Demetria Thaten! I’d be confident in saying this one was a bit more satisfying though, as it was the meet that execution finally came together on all 3 lifts, and Demetria needed every one of those kilos to place 2nd! We knew going in it was going to be a really close battle, with 4 competitors all likely vying for 2nd place and having a legitimate shot based on execution. And in the end it came down to Demetria’s final pull jumping her into 2nd place by tieing on total, but winning on bodyweight! It was basically a perfect day, as we took what was really her 3rd attempt bench on her 2nd, just in case something went wrong and we could have a chance to retake it. So with that, Demetria hit all our goals for the meet with a 286lb. squat, 198lb. bench press, and a 363lb. deadlift to secure the PR total at 848lbs!
