► On the Record

“She should be proud at what she has achieved.”

– Billy Henry, power lifting coach and Northwest Blind Athletes Association founder, of 18-year-old Rachel Talley’s missed attempt at the 230 lbs. deadlifting Washington state record in her age and weight class at the Jerry Capello Memorial Championships in Medford, Ore. last weekend. A student at Hudson’s Bay High School and the Washington State School for the Blind in Vancouver, Talley plans to make another attempt at the record at a tournament in Portland later this year.
