Mary Morton, from Seneca, SC, competed in her first competition this past weekend at the USA Powerlifting Lift for Life powerlifting event in Smyrna, GA. Relatively new to the sport, she went in with no real expectations, however she walked away with a very impressive 3rd place (out of 9 lifters in her class) and several records she can notch on her belt.
Mary went 7 for 9 and broke junior records in the squat, deadlift and total. The open record in the squat also fell. In addition to the RAW records, she broke the Equipped junior records in the squat, deadlift and total. Mary is off to a great start to a very promising lifting career.
