Samantha Turnbull: 53 kg Junior & Collegiate National Champion
Check out this feature by CSTV on Sam Turnbull. Sam began lifting in the Spruce Creek High School program in Port Orange, Florida. She is now a resident athlete at the OTC in Colorado Springs and trains under the direction of Bob Morris. Sam recently moved up from the 48 kg class to the 53 kg class and has really improved, getting much stronger. As you will see in the video, she has tremendous natural ability and explosiveness. If she continues with the sport, she will be the heir apparent to Melanie Roach and has the potential for a 2012 and 2016 Olympic team.
Sam will travel to Sicily to compete in the Jurnior International Tournament and then Peru to compete in the the World University Championships later this summer. Go Sam!
