May 15, 2009 ? East Stroudsburg PA ? Joanne Musa, creator of www.TaxLienLady.com, is known online as the Tax Lien Lady. She teaches people all over the country how to safely invest in tax lien certificates and tax deeds. That?s what she does professionally, but her hobby is Olympic style weightlifting. Ms. Musa has been a national and world master champion weightlifter, and for the last 10 years she has also been a coach in the sport.
Six years ago, along with her long time coach and mentor Peter Roselli, she began coaching one of her sons, Peter Musa in the sport.
?I told him it would be good for football, it would help him be stronger and more explosive. He was only 10 years old then and in the 4th grade,? says Musa.
Now her son Peter is 16 years old and the top ranked male weightlifter in the 17 and under age group. He has also won first place in his weight class in USA Weightlifting?s Junior National Championship (age 20 and under) for the last 2 years. His performance at the School Age Championship last June and the Junior National Championship this past March have earned him a spot on the men?s team for the first Youth World Championship to be held in Chiang Mai, Thailand next week. Not only did he earn a spot on the team, thanks to his ranking, his mother was chosen as the head coach for the men?s team.
?I don?t take this assignment lightly,? says Ms. Musa. ?I?m honored to be able to coach these boys at this contest. It?s a very important competition for USA Weightlifting. This is the only qualifier for the Youth Olympics in 2010. We need to perform well as a team in order to earn just 2 spots for our young men in the Youth Olympics. I?m also very happy that a few of the boy?s personal coaches are also coming to Thailand, so I?ll have a lot of help, and we have a great team leader, Butch Curry, who was on the 1980 Olympic team.?
Ms. Musa and her son Peter leave Sunday May 17th for Thailand. They?ll arrive in Chiang Mai on Tuesday May 19th, the day that the competition starts. The actual lifting starts on Wednesday the 20th and continues through Sunday May 24th. The US team consists of 8 boys and 7 girls. ?We have 2 boys lifting on Wednesday, 2 lifting on Thursday, 2, including Peter, lifting on Friday, and 2 lifting on Sunday. Then we all come home on Monday.###
