Karyn Marshall was the first Women’s World Champion from the US, and the first female lifter in history to Clean and Jerk more than 300 lb. officially.

We’ll be adding biographical articles on all of the Senior World and Olympic Champions, and others major contributors to USA Weightlifting history in the months and years to come, so please stay in touch.

Two examples of such articles are one on Anthony Terlazzo and another on Karyn Marshall.
