We have another new International Weightlifting Federation Category 1 Technical Official added to the roster for the NY WSO!
A huge congratulations goes out to Kurt Roderick on this outstanding achievement. Kurt wears many hats in the world of weightlifting and in life. He’s the head coach and owner of Murder of Crows, he’s an adjunct instructor at Lehman College in Exercise Science, and he recently became a father of a little boy. To say Kurt is busy would be an understatement and it just goes to show his dedication to leveling up as a technical official.
Kurt took the written exam for this certification back in November before taking the practical in December at the 2023 American Open Finals—all while coaching 10 athletes and managing his other responsibilities.
We’re super proud of Kurt and his achievement. He can take on any TO job at a weightlifting meet and regularly uses those skills and knowledge to grow as a coach, develop his athletes, and make New York Weightlifting better.
Congrats again, Kurt!!
