  • USA Weightlifting – Sr. International Coach (Pending). The designation of International Coach with USAW is entirely based on merit for producing athletes who’ve represented Team USA on the international level. These athletes include: Brian Reisenauer, IWF World Championships & Pan American Championships; Nadeen Pierre, IWF Youth World Championships and Pan American Championships; Adrianne Haider (fka Acosta) FISU University World Games; and Jared Flannery IWF Youth World Championships. Coach V’s status as an International Coach is pending because he must first complete the Level 2 certification – which is just a formality at this point.
  • Local, National and International Medals: Since opening in 2014, Coach V. has helped over 30 athletes qualify for Nationals or the American Open Finals, including: 2 National Champions; 1 American Open Finals Champions; 8 national level medalists; 4 International Team USA Members; 1 International Medalist; and Numerous Minnesota LWC Champions, Medalists, and Record Holders.
