March 23 and 24, Johnston, RI
A group of 13 lifters representing Team TPS competed at the RPS New England Revolution Powerlfting meet, setting more records per lifter than ever. No one left without a 2nd place trophy or better!
Three competitors, Kim Stabile, Christa Hodapp, and Sue Priver, train in the TPS 5-3-1 Training Group and were competing for the first time—all three placed 2nd or better and Kim set world records.
While simultaneously preparing for his own first meet, Dustin Diedrich coached his fiancée Jessica Booth, and the couple took home a pair of first place trophies—phenomenal!
Russ Smith did an outstanding job handling his teammates on Saturday before competing himself on Sunday. Fellow TPS powerlifter Rich Malloy did not compete this weekend but also really came through with spectacular handling for the guys on Sunday.
