The Cannon Falls tournament was on December 9, 2017 and located at the Cannon Falls High School. 127 lifters were in this year’s tournament. There were 3 different platforms. On the right platform the girls were weightlifting. In the middle, the platform for the boys, the 50 kg (110 pounds) class lifted. Gabe H. was on the platform and he earned a silver medal. On the left platform the 75kg+ class lifted.

The coaches host tournaments because it helps them fundraise for the school. This is a very slow process trying to set up the meet. First, they have to rent out the field house. Next, they call all the janitors to clean up the Field House after the tournament and the tech people, for the microphones and TVs. They want the people to hear the word so, they start posting letters, sending emails, posting on Facebook and sending mail to everyone who might be interested. They need about 45 people to help. Finally they need some Cannon Falls coaches, weight lifters, and parents to help clean up the field house. Cannon Falls did a great job hosting this tournament. They can’t wait for next year!
