Pro Am Snatch Comp Results

A little over a month has elapsed since hurricane Sandy, and many of Team KBNY's dedicated lifters stepped up on the platform, despite a few weeks where working out was the last thing their  mind. During the first few weeks following Sandy, the gym was a bit of a ghost town, as many of our members sustained considerable loss, or were helping others in need. While the gym itself sustained no physical damage, training for our Snatch competition took a back seat to five hour gas lines.

Thank God, most of our members have found their way back, and things are getting back to normal. We were determined to keep up team spirit and not be stopped, and hold this comp regardless of our break in our training. Below is the list of results for the 2012 Pro-Am Snatch Competition*.
