Power Lifting Records Shattered at AAU Junior Olympic Games

Power Lifting Records Shattered at AAU Junior Olympic Games

Written by: Amanda Szylin

More than 25 records were broken in one day at the Powerlifting competition in the 2014 AAU Junior Olympic Games. The members competing were in it to win in and many took home medals.

One member in particular had a very impressive meet. Gage Gregurich, 10, took home four gold medals and his team from Nebraska also claimed the first place team award. He grabbed the gold in the Bench Press-Assisted, Deadlift-Assisted, Push/Pull-Assisted and Full Meet-Assisted in the Male division, breaking the record in all four.

Gregurich said he started powerlifting because his father entered a powerlifting with him, and he's been hooked ever since. At a mere 66 pounds, he said the most he's lifted was 170 pounds in the deadlift competition earlier today. 

This young member sure has a ton of talent! We can't wait to see what the future has in store for him!
