Here's a sweet video of 12-year old CJ Cummings of Team Beaufort at the Youth National Championships in Dearborn, MI this past June.  At this meet CJ set 2 national records in the snatch, 3 national records in the clean&jerk, and 3 national records in the total lifting in the 13-year old and under category.  Here he his with 220# clean&jerk at a bodyweight of 109#. That's over double bodyweight and did I mention he is 12-years old.
CJ will be travelling to California at the end of this month to compete in the American Open, which is USA's second most prestigous competition and open to "all" ages.  CJ will be competing against some of the best in the nation and has a legitimate shot at medaling according to his coach and mine, Ray Jones.
So here's the pitch!! CJ could use some help with travel expenses and would appreciate any help we could give him.  So if you have some spare folding money or a change jar you need to get rid of, please consider helping CJ.   I have a donation jar set-up at the box if you are able to help!!! If you're out of town and want to help hit me up at 843-812-3939. Its been awhile since he has lifted here at the box, so maybe we can get him in for an MOD.
 In case I failed to mention, CJ is the youngest US lifter known to have hit a double bodyweight C&J, which he did as an 11-year-old (click here for video
And did I mention he lives here in Beaufort!!!
