Jenny Arthur is just getting back from placing 6th at the Olympics and breaking an American Record with a 107kg Snatch! She already holds the record in the clean and jerk. She has lifted at four World Championships and placed 7th in 2015. She placed 2nd in the 2013 Junior World Championships and placed 1st in the Pan American Junior Championships the same year. She is a three time National Champion and an American Open Champion.
Norik Vardanian recently broke the American Record in the snatch at 172kg as a 94kg lifter (and briefly held the record in the total). Last year he won Silver at the 2015 Pan American Games and represented Armenia in the 2012 Summer Olympics. Norik is one of the most technically proficient lifters in the world, and we are extremely excited to welcome him the Murder of Crows Barbell.
