On Sunday, May 7th, Downstate Crossfit had a room full of spectators for the 2017 Spring Invitational Weightlifting Meet.  All seats were taken, the warm up area buzzing with weightlifters and folks enjoyed every bit of all the goodies vendors had to offer.

The Spring Invitational offered experienced weightlifters a chance to lift big weights, while supporting new weightlifters by providing them with a non-sanctioned session. 

Danny Casey and Steve Swistak were excited to have such a meet, where various weightlifting clubs can come to together to support the sport of weightlifting! Not only were a number of coaches present, but a few competed! The meet exceeded everyone's expectations and folks are already talking about next year.

This time around in covering an event, I had the help from Liz of ElizaMas!  A million thanks to Liz for capturing the most beautiful moments!   

Watch the short clip reflecting the day and a message from Dan and Steve.  Till we meet again!
