Mattie Rogers continues to be head and shoulders ahead of her competition here in the States. Rogers (69kg) took to the platform at the 2017 USA Weightlifting National Championships Saturday night.

The result?

A 6-for-6 performance that easily won three gold medals. On top of that, Rogers improved her American Record Clean & Jerk by 1kg to 134kg on her third and final lift.

On the snatch Rogers went 98-102-105. Her last lift was just 1kg shy of her American Record set at last year’s Olympic Trials. For the clean and jerks, Rogers hit 126-130-134 for a 239kg total. The total ties her existing American Record set at the 2016 Pan American Championships.
