Had the privilege to speak on a panel this evening with some very relevant women in the sport of weightlifting. Included on the panel were:
1. Rachel Silverman and Giselle Shepatin - Hall of Famers and pioneers in women’s weightlifting.
2. Joann Aita (@joannaita7) - Masters World Champion in weightlifting and powerlifting.
3. Marilyn King - 1972 + 1976 Olympian in the Pentathlon.
4. Chloe Tacata - 15 year old youth national champion and record holder.
Thank you Jim Schmitz (@jimschmitz) and Leo Totten for inviting me to speak on this panel. It was an honor to be a part of this evening.
Quote of the night came from Marilyn King when Jim was speaking about the history of the women’s barbell and she responded, “What’s a women’s bar? Is it like a bar that’s lighter?” So great to hear about the history of this sport first hand from the women who paved the way.
