Quick spotlight goes to one of our first remote athletes @ceyceystrong ... Carissa started off with our team about a year ago when fellow UCLA alum @sharon0a.t connected with her. She tried out our program and submitted videos to @coach.toph for technique analysis. On the other side of LA, #coach.toph also made visits to where she trained at the UCLA rec center and brought one of our raw lifters @sandrawr53 to lift with... let's say this was a great first roll having our 58s train with each other. What made things nice for carissa was that her family is from our backyard in Long Beach, being a #MillikanHighSchool graduate. During her school breaks, she was able to train with the rest of the team. .
But now is time to send her back to the remote world as she pursues her career endeavours in San Antonio... #bitterSweet having you in house to now a few states away, but the team wishes you luck!!! All the best in training and remember to keep sending coach your videos... let's hope one of the AO series comps are near you so we can see you on that national platform!!! .
GOOD LUCK CARISSA!!!!
Since she skipped out a lil early on Saturday, @d_____e____n____i___s__e____ took advantage of the platform still being in tact and collected her 1st place medal for masters 69kg and 3rd overall prizes with a stand on the podium! Congrats again on your first meet Denise!!! #someoneForgotToMoveTheCone!
