TEAM JTS

Ariel Stephens is a fast rising Olympic weightlifter based in Moss Landing, Ca and competes for Monterey Bay Barbell Club, where she is coached by Jacob Tsypkin. Ariel currently coaches CrossFit and Weightlifting classes to support her athletic lifestyle. Ariel competed in swimming for the University of Hawaii-Manoa, before she started weightlifting in March 2012. Although Ariel has been weightlifting for a short period of time, her PRs of 102 kg in the Clean and Jerk and 76kg in the Snatch make her a very formidable competitor in the 69kg weight class. Watch for Ariel as she continue to improve, hopefully qualifying to compete for Team USA at an international competition, within the next couple years.
