On this episode, we sit down with a rising star in the international weightlifting community,  22-year old Jourdan Delacruz. While the roster for the Tokyo Olympic Games hasn't been finalized, Jourdan is in a great position to qualify. She's the 2019 Pan-American Champion in the 55kg category and the 2020 IWF World Cup Champion in the 49kg category. In our discussion, we talk about training, changing bodyweight categories and how weightlifters can encourage newer athletes in the sport to get more involved.
