As many of you know, Harrison had an exceptional meet this past weekend in Anaheim. He was one of 8 men to compete for Team USA at the 2017 World Weightlifting championships - This team is only 2nd to the Olympic team and gives the athletes the chance to compete at the top level during the years between the Olympic games. Weightlifting consists of 3 attempts each of the snatch and clean and jerk. Harrison's 1st attempt was 150kg, his second was a 155kg (341lbs), and he narrowly missed his last attempt at 159kgs. Both the 150kg and the 155kg snatch set a new Youth American Record, breaking his old record of 147kgs. He opened with a 187kg clean and jerk. His second was at 193kgs (426lbs) - this is 1kg over his previous Youth, Junior and Senior American Record and his Youth World Record. It also secured a Bronze medal in clean and jerk. Unfortunately, Harrison's quad decided to massively cramp (We will be visiting a few doctors to figure out why he cramps but he was not injured!), so his coach, Kevin Simons, made the decision to waive his last lift. Harrison had an ending total of 348kgs (snatch+clean and jerk). This was enough for a bronze medal in total. It also set a Youth, Junior and Senior total American Record. Based on a math equation that factors the weight lifted, body weight and overall ranking called a Sinclair, it was figured that, pound for pound, Harrison's total was the most EVER lifted by an American male! It also broke a 20 year World Championship men's team medal drought! Harrison did an amazing job representing his country at this years championships!
Here are his lifts:
