This past weekend 20 year old Mattie Rogers competed at the -69kg class at the 2016 USA Weightlifting Junior Nationals where she set new American records for the snatch at 105kg and the clean and jerk at 133kg.

Hookgrip reported via Instagram that Mattie, “ended up with 8 American records (2 snatch, 3 CJ, 3 total) and she’s only 20! This total will rank for Olympic qualification so she is in great shape in the fight for a spot in Rio.”
