wins bronze medal
Competing in the 63kg category last weekend at Altamont Springs, Fla., Eugene's Sarah Bertram became the first female weightlifter from Oregon to be a medalist at the National Junior Championships. The 19-year-old University of Oregon sophomore's lifts of 65 kg. in the snatch and 85 kg. in the clean and jerk matched her own state records. A graduate of North Eugene High School where she qualified for the district meet in the javelin, Bertram got into Olympic style weightlifting in an effort to improve her javelin performance. She now lifts for Heavy Athletics weightlifting club, based at Ironworks Gym in Creswell. Although she will graduate from the "junior" ranks this year, Bertram plans to continue lifting with an eye on qualifying for the 2008 Olympic Games.
