The Zercher Strength Classic, a long held traditional meet held at Clark’s Gym, was the featured meet of the month of March. So it comes as no surprise that the winner of this prestigious meet is crowned as the USAWA LIFTER OF THE MONTH for MARCH. Joe Garcia defended a tough class of 4 hard-nosed competitors to take the overall win, and because of this, earned the lifter of the month. Way to go Joe!!!!
I’m guessing that Joe has competed in more Zercher’s than any other lifter thru it’s 25 year plus history. There is no harder meet than the Zercher – having to do 13 different all-round lifts in one day, and amongst the lifts several heavy lifts. It’s the same as several meets packed into one!
Congrats to Joe Garcia for being awarded USAWA Lifter of the Month for March, 2014.
