APO 2024 TCBB Spring Showdown III Meet Results

April 6th saw the third Twin Cities Barbell Spring Showdown (our 12th meet hosted to date) again at the Inver Grove Heights Armory, this time under the banner of the American Powerlifting Organization. The Armory gym is a fantastic meet location, very spacious, rubber floor, and they take care of all the chairs and cleanup, all for a very modest rental fee.

This year’s meet was about a month earlier than in the past due to availability of the facility, which took down our normally sold out meet to a still solid 36 lifters in two flights. As some of you may know, we have created coefficients for all the various forms of powerlifting: raw, raw/wraps, single ply, double ply, tested, non-tested, and or course men/women by weight class with the Glossbrenner. This allows all the women to compete against one another and all the men, regardless of which division or category they are. Then
we give prize money to the top three by total coefficient.

This year’s winners were:

Women
1st Lisa Fahy $1500
2nd Isabella Hoeft $1000
3rd Layla Galli – her first meet ever! $500

Men
1st Baba Akindele $1500
2nd Luke Uribe $1000
3rd Joe Hays $500

Another excellent meet in the TCBB tradition: “powerlifting the way it should be”. Stay tuned for our Holiday Throwdown meet coming late November/early December!
