Two gold, provincial record for Langley's Masse

A relative newcomer to the sport, Adam Masse is proving to be a quick study.

In his first competition, the 23-year-old from Langley took the gold medal in both the snatch and clean and jerk events.

Masse was competing at Semiahmoo Weightlifting Club's 42nd annual Sea Festival Open Olympic Weightlifting competition.

It was held June 28 and June 29.

Masse was in the 77-kg division of the senior men's division and came out on top, lifting 115 kg in the snatch and 151 kg in the clean and jerk. The latter total also set a new provincial record.

Masse, who works at Langley's Campus Crossfit as a certified instructor, is off to Beijing later this month where he will spend a few weeks with some of the world's top lifters, coaches and Chinese Olympians.

Upon his return, he will continue training for the Kilo Open provincial qualifier in November and then the B.C. provincial championships in December.
