USAW Recognizes Referees

July 06, 2012, 12:43 p.m. (ET)

The officials of USA Weightlifting serve faithfully and tirelessly, often over many decades, to apply the rules of weightlifting with fairness and excellence. They are volunteers who do their arduous work with no compensation and at their own expense. We are proud to have such a dedicated and competent group of volunteers—we can never thank them enough! We will try to at least recognize and memorialize their contributions on the website, beginning with the officials of the 2012 Youth Nationals. Here are their names:

Roger Sadecki
Dan Foerster
Richard Mason (Canada)
Stan Bailey
Dennis Espinosa
Paul Chen
Madeline Chen
William Brown

This and future lists will be memorialized under the Referee section. Thank you referees!
