Hey guys! We are proud to announce that both Mario and Brianna Marquez will be representing Team USA this October. This is an amazing accomplishment for one athlete, let alone two in the same family.
Mario qualified and has been selected to represent Team USA at Junior Pan Ams in Guadalajara, Mexico as a 67kg lifter. He recently won third place at the 2020 Junior Pan Am Championship and hopes to bring home more hardware.
Brianna qualified and has been selected to represent Team USA at Youth Worlds in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia as a 64kg lifter. This will be her second international meet and first Worlds event.
These two athletes (and siblings) were selected among the best in the country to go compete for Team USA Weightlifting. Due to the fact that they are currently not fully funded, all flight, hotel, fees, credentials and other costs are covered by Bexar Barbell and the Marquez family. Our hope is to minimize these costs via this fundraiser shirt.
Competing at these international events is the first step in these athletes journey to reaching their goals in Olympic Weightlifting. They both work day in and day out in the gym to put forth their best effort. Thank you in advance for your support.
