Whitehorse weightlifter Jeane Lassen dominated her division at the Pan American Championships/Continental Olympic Qualifier in Callao, Peru last weekend.
Lassen, competing in the 75-kilogram weight class, lifted 103 kilograms in the snatch and 134 kilograms in the clean and jerk for a total of 237 kilograms.
That was four kilograms more than silver medalist Ubaldina Valoyes of Colombia and 17 more than bronze medalist Claret Bellorin of Venezuela.
“This win just keeps cementing her spot on the Olympic team,” said Lassen’s mother Moira Lassen. The pair is in Montreal for a competition this weekend, and will return to Whitehorse next week to continue training for the Beijing Games this summer.
