As most people in Hawley Texas were getting geared up for family and friends at Thanksgiving, the Helzer family was packed and ready for the trip to Las Vegas, Nevada for the World Association of Bencher and Deadlifters (WABDL) World Championships. What an exciting and prestigious trip to be able to make. The best lifters in the world were gathered to prove who was the top athlete in the world.
Lexi Helzer went to compete in her weight/age class, and came out not only as the bench press and deadlift champion, but also as the new WABDL World Champion. These titles come on the heels of her setting a new world record in bench press at an earlier event. I’m so very proud of this young lady who has accomplished so much at such a young and tender age. Congratulations, Lexi, you truly have the world at your feet.
