Below you will find a short recap of each team for the day. Friday was the final day of competition for our athletes. Most competition wrapped up on Thursday and those athletes received their awards on Friday.
Brandon also set two new personal records today (squat and deadlift) and won three golds (deadlift, squat and combination) and one silver (bench press). He broke 507 total kg, which is his best ever in a competition.
The section below shows which delegates have been writing blogs for us. These are new blogs written on Friday night to recap that day and previous day’s activities. To view all blogs written earlier this week, visit our WordPress site.
With the addition of an athlete-leader on our Team Missouri staff, we wanted to utilize Allison’s skillset and try something new. So we’re excited to announce Allison’s FIFTH recap show, which you can view here. On Friday night, she catches up with all of the sports we’ve missed during the week: golf, powerlifting, softball and tennis.
We want to thank everyone who followed Team Missouri this past week. It truly was a phenomenal experience and we couldn’t have done it without the support of those who came to cheer us on as well as those who cheered from afar.
We will send out another FINAL newsletter or two with some last tidbits of information here and there. As your athletes come back home, let us know if you have any other stories that we missed or if you want to write a blog about your experience either in Seattle as a delgate or a fan.
TEAM MISSOURI APP
Whether you will watch Team Missouri athletes compete in Seattle or you just want to follow their progress from afar, the Team Missouri mobile app has features to enhance your experience cheering them on:
There are two ways to download our app:
We will also be sending out nightly newsletters updating you on the progress of Team Missouri. Those newsletters will be emailed AND posted to the mobile app. If you want to receive the newsletters, but don’t want to sign up for the mobile app, please click here (if you received this email, you’re already signed up). The best way to stay up-to-date as competitions are going on, however, is to download the app and receive real-time alerts from Seattle!
We are still working on adding a few things here and there, so make sure you check back in near the end of June to get the full experience.
