At a local meet in Lebanon in her native state of New Hampshire, Jane Higgins (Thor’s Stone Weightlifting Club) again increased her New England LWC Snatch Record. In the event, contested on May 19, Jane added a kilogram to her previous Record performance from earlier this year, yielding 31 kgs. This is literally World Class caliber lifting! Huge congratulations once again to Jane and everyone at Thor’s Stone!!

 

NATIONAL MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIPS: JANE HIGGINS PROCLAIMED ‘QUEEN OF THE UNIVERSE’!

Quite a few New Englanders took part in the National Masters Championships in Buffalo, NY early this month. But I am singling out Jane Higgins (Thor’s Stone, New Hampshire) for special praise. Only two women age 70 or more competed, according to the Official Results. Jane set new National Masters Records in 53 Kilos Bodyweight Class by duplicating her feat from a local meet in January (which established the New England Records), with six for six good lifts to boot. So the National Records now stand at 30 kgs. for Snatch, 39 for Clean & Jerk and 69 kgs. Total. Ms. Higgins was also named Grand Master for her session. And I am proclaiming her Queen of the Universe…because I’m the Webmaster here, and I can do that! Huge congratulations to JaneCoach Wallin and everyone in Thor’s Stone!!
