Jacksonville 9-year-old breaks two 13U American records for Olympic weightlifting

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – In an incredible showing at the USA Weightlifting North American open, 9-year-old Annalee Seek from Jacksonville broke two 13U youth American records in her weight category.

Annalee’s mom told News4JAX she has only been weightlifting for a year and a half.

She competed during the 2022 North American Open Finals in Atlanta at the beginning of December in the 13-and-under age group and 66 pounds and under weight class.

She broke one record in snatch with 30 kg — 66 pounds — and another record in total with 143 pounds. Annalee weighs in at 65 pounds, which means she is lifting her own body weight to beat the competition.

She also tied during the clean and jerk portion — formerly held by an 11-year-old, her mom said.
