WINSTON SALEM — Two local power lifters had success recently (Saturday, August 31) at the USAPL Winston-Salem Classic.

Erik Andrews of Bear Creek and Michelle Jordan of Siler City both medaled multiple times in the event to bring some hardware back to Chatham County.

At the competition, lifters competed in the squat, bench press and deadlift.

Jordan received a gold medal in her weight class with her three best totals and while also capturing the gold for Bench.

Andrews, meanwhile, won the gold in the Bench Press, silver in his weight class with his three best totals, and a silver in the Masters Division.

“It was a good day and a well run meet,” said Jordan. “I am happy that I improved.”

Andrews added that “the sport continues to grow and the competition keeps on improving. North Carolina has a lot of strong people.”
