December 2022 Athlete of the Month

The Core Values of Conqueror Weightlifting are Effort, Attitude, Trust and Respect.

Each month, we recognize one of our athletes who excels in consistently demonstrating these Core Values. Our December 2022 Athlete of Month is Ellen Ellis

Ellen is a local Crossfit athlete who came to came to us seeking to refine her technique on the Olympic lifts. After diligently training for a few months and showing great improvements, she entered her first weightlifting meet and performed exceptionally well going 6 for 6 and qualifying for the USAW Under 25 National Championship and the American Open Series 1.

Ellen’s success is a testament to her relentless work ethic and desire to improve. She approaches each training day with genuine enthusiasm and always gives her very best effort to the task at hand. Encouraging and uplifting fellow teammates is another one of Ellen’s strengths that make her a valuable member of our team. Amazingly, her training time is split between Olympic weightlifting and competitive Crossfit participation which makes her achievements all the more impressive. Ellen is a dynamite athlete with a bright future ahead in weightlifting. Congratulations on being selected as the December Athlete of the Month!
