January 2023 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 January 2023 Athlete of Month is Hank” “The Tank” Thompson.

Hank is an incredibly hard working young athlete (age 10) with a strong desire to develop himself to the best of his ability. Since starting on August 1st, Hank has not missed a single training session and always completes his training with outstanding effort. His toughness and desire to excel is exceptional for a young man his age. In addition to being a football player and state champion wrestler, he has taken up the challenge of Olympic weightlifting and recently competed for us in his first ever meet. Hank’s next goal is qualifying for and competing at the National Youth Weightlifting Championship in June.

We are very proud of Hank and look forward to helping him achieve his goals. Congratulations on being selected as our Athlete of the Month!
