Beaufort’s Dade Stanley made the most of his final USA Weightlifting Youth National Championships, sweeping his weight class Sunday in Anaheim, California.
Stanley claimed all three gold medals in the 81kg weight class, and he did so with relative ease, clinching all three golds with a lift of 145kg on his first clean and jerk attempt. Stanley also hit a 135kg snatch for a 280kg total, easily outpacing the competition by 23kg in the snatch, 3kg in the clean, and 26kg overall.
