Mattie Rogers (69) just hit a 145kg/319lb jerk in training, setting her up for incredible success at the 2017 IWF Weightlifting World Championships in Anaheim, California. The competition starts in late November.

Rogers already holds the American Records for the snatch, clean and jerk, and total in the women's 69kg division, and she's poised to lead Team USA to even more accolades at the 2017 IWF World Championships.
While Rogers has been dominant, she's also been training and competing at less than her full potential, but she's now feeling "healthy and strong again" for the first time in "a while."

A strong, healthy Rogers is bound to be competitive and exciting, and we're all looking forward to seeing her on the competition floor again!
