Nathan Damron has the talk of weightlifting on social media over the past few months. With some monster squats culminating some really big Olympic lifts right before the American Open, all eyes were set on Damron in the 94kg weight category.
Damron did not disappoint as went on to break three Junior American Records with a 160kg snatch, 197kg clean & jerk and a 357kg total. The records were held by some very recognizable names. Jared Fleming held the Junior American Snatch Record with 158kg set in 2011. Fleming also held the Total Record with 351kg set at the same competition. D’Angelo Osorio held the the Clean & Jerk Record with 195kg set in 2013.
Hookgrip captured all six of Damron’s lifts. Check them out!
