MIAMI COUNTY – On April 1, the Champaign County Special Olympics weight-lifting team competed at the Miami County Tournament. The team, consisting of 5 lifters, competed in the Bench Press and/or the Dead Lift. In all, our 5 lifters accomplished 5 personal records in this tournament. Personal records are followed by an asterisk after the weight.

Although only 5 lifters competed in this tournament, we have a total of 8 lifters at this time. We are gearing up for Regionals in May, a tournament in Mercer County in May, followed up by competing at State in June.
