We’ll be watching Sarah Robles in London as she is the highest ranked weightlifter in the country. At the World Championships last year, Sarah placed 11th in the world, and was able to beat every female and male American on the roster.
She is wearing Ming Wang of Dallas, TX who has the nicest plus size investment wear clothing I have seen in a long, long time.
Check out the I am Ming Wang promo on their website!
Ming Wang donated clothes for Sarah to wear at the Olympics along with designer, Jill Alexander. Two great designers who care about their customers!
Like many plus size women, Sarah has found finding women’s clothing that fits her to be a frustrating endeavor. Many brands don’t carry larger sizes and some of the larger sizes are not designed to look good on a larger female frame. It is sad to hear that for her Olympic group photos, Sarah had to wear the men’s clothing options, rolling the sleeves to look more feminine.
Sarah will be one of two women heading to the Summer Olympics this month for the Team USA Weightlifting.
Sarah will be competing on August 5th, for the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk.
We are on Team Sarah and we will be watching!
More as it happens!
