Comments from Coach Wayne:

"Congrats to all members of the Hawaii Island Barbell Club who competed in the Hawaii State Championships this last weekend on Oahu. Mahalo to everyone who helped put on an awesome meet. The sport of Olympic Weightlifting is going in the right direction for the state of Hawaii. Lots of strong men and women of all ages shared the platform. Congrats to everyone on our team for posting a number and leaving it all on the platform. Special congrats to Janice Pagdilao for taking the silver medal in her weight class!! Also mahalo to Carolyn, Lena, Trevor, Jessie, Wennson, and Kehau for all your support, volunteering, and cheering!! I would also like to thank everyone at CrossFit AllStar for their support, fundraising, donations, and comments. Much mahalos to Chris Matute for laying the foundation for the club to go in the right direction and guiding my coaching and training."
Just incredible.....each HIBBC athlete coming out of CrossFit AllStar is LIVING OUR MISSION and spreading their ALOHA where ever they go. Not only are they making personal gains and setting records for themselves, they are GIVING TO OTHERS AND REPRESENTING WHO WE ARE even when they travel. This is a GYM PR if you ask me and I couldn't be more impressed or proud of these guys!!! If you're a member of CrossFit AllStar they are representing YOU TO!  And they did an excellent job! Be sure to congratulate them in the gym and THANK THEM for making the extra effort to go. Even if you have never trained at Barbell Club, you're still part of this gym and of this great celebration! 
Your CrossFit membership (unlimited memberships) INCLUDES training time during Barbell Club take advantage of it! It will help your overall health, strength and understanding of the lifts and human mechanics! Wed night 6-8pm and Sunday morning 8-10am

I want to personally thank Coach Wayne, Carolyn, and HIBBC lifters for making the commitment to train and travel for this event! We are so proud of you all! Congratulations from the heart!
