Katherine Nye is one of the most powerful weightlifters in the world today. She put that on display by hitting a strong 330lb clean from blacks.
Nye is without a doubt, one of the best female weightlifters that the United States has to offer. Her talent has been recognized for a while, but she recently started to turn a corner with her skills. As a resutl, her spot on the 2020 Olympic team is a near certainty.
Nye has been doing some really impressive things in the weight room lately. The 21 year old has been crushing massive squats, en route to winning the IWF World Championships. In fact, she became the youngest female in American history to sweep gold in that contest. It was a quite impressive showing, demonstrating how much work she has been doing, and how much she has grown.
Nevertheless, Katherine Nye has no intentions of slowing down. As the Olympic season approaches, she has been staying in the gym, working hard. In fact, she put that work on display with a recent post to her Instagram page. The video shows her hitting a massive 330lb clean, off some hefty size blocks.
Check out the impressive lift:
“I don’t even know how I did this😦
I think I hit this because @teamhercwl finally got his USAW L2 and knows how to coach me properly😜”
The excitement is clear on Nye’s face after she hits this lift. Furthermore, she attributes it to her coach, saying that she is shocked that she was even able to be successful. On the other hand, you would not be able to guess that, judging by how smoothly she got the weight up. She is clearly improving and getting better with each training session.
Katherine Nye is unbelievably successful in her weightlifting career so far, enough to even earn a spot on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list. It seems that she just continues to be impressive at every step of the way.
