Mary Stack, the Ann Arbor CILs very own Paralympian, won the Women’s Powerlifting Event at the U.S. National’s in Edmond, Oklahoma this week. She lifted 302 lbs. Yes that is correct and not a typo – she showed her athleticism and determination to be at the top — 302 lbs!!! This is her personal best in competition, an increase by 12 lbs. Watch out world Mary Stack is coming to lift you out of London in August 2012!
Way to go Mary!
