The Wisconsin Open took place June 7th, 2014 at CrossFit 262 in Waukesha, WI. Sixty two lifters from throughout the Midwest made the trip to compete in this rare event. The women lifted first and impressed all. Eve Cuccia represented Madison Weightlifting and produced a state record Snatch & Total, qualifying her for USAW Nationals.
The lighter weight men took the platform next, with several first time lifters displaying obvious jitters. Many lifters hit personal bests, while some learned about the strict standards of a USAW meet the hard way. Jeff Fee of Chicago Strength took the 77kg group with a slim 2 kg margin, while in the 85kg class, Jon Alvarez of Madtown LWC won by a huge 20kg margin.
The 94kg class was dominated by Richard Fairley who totaled 293 kg with a 133kg snatch and a 160kg clean & jerk. He went 6 for 6 in impressive fashion. In the 105’s, Daniel Swank smashed with a 135kg snatch and 165kg clean & jerk, with near misses at 140 in the snatch and 170 in the clean & jerk.
