Ontario Junior Provincials was a great success. Four of the clients I coach and program for lifted their hearts out, and all four came away with medals: two golds, and two silvers in all.

Maggie Morgan (@magssaakje – 63kg class), who I’ve been working with for nearly 3 years, had an absolutely perfect meet. She went 9/9, squatted 112.5kg/248lbs (13lbs PR), benched 65kg/143lbs (3lbs PR), and deadlifted 142.5kg/314lbs on her third attempt to win the silver, and to lock in a 17lbs lifetime PR.

Jackson Spencer (@jackson_spencer – 105kg) had an unbelievable meet in a gold medal, record setting performance. Jackson is the current 105kg junior national champion. He went 8/9, squatting 282.5/622lbs to set a new national record, and a 16lbs competition PR. He also had a massive day on the deadlift, pulling 290kg/639lbs for a 54lbs deadlift PR, which set the new national record total at 737.5kg. He hit a 441 wilks.

Mallory Rowan (@malloryrowan) and Catherine Chu (@cattyceezed) battled until the very end for the gold in the 72kg class, tying in total after all was said and done. Mallory won the gold on bodyweight and had an incredible meet. She squatted 135kg/297lbs (11lbs PR), benched 70kg/153lbs, and deadlifted 145kg/319lbs for a new deadlift PR. I believe she improved on her total from July by 22.5kg, and with that, she is an Ontario Champion.

Catherine racked up PR’s that were so ridiculous I can barely even keep track. She went 9/9 and squatted 137.5kg for her first ever 300lbs squat. She benched 65kg/143lbs for a 13lbs PR, and deadlifted 147.5kg/326lbs for an 11lbs PR. I took over her programming 9 weeks ago, and we’ve made incredible progress since. Two months ago she was considering not even doing provincials, and now she comes away with a silver medal after a perfect meet.

I had an awesome time coaching these amazing, driven lifters, and I’m so proud of them all. They’re all juniors, and all have even bigger numbers coming their way at Canadian Nationals in February.
