YAKIMA, Wash. — Yakima native Dary Reed recently won a gold medal at the USAPL Powerlifting Raw Nationals held in Lombard, Illinois. Reed competes in the M-4 74 kilo class.

The medal was something of a “Hat Trick” for Reed as earlier this year he secured the gold medal at the Washington State Championship as well as gold at the Western Regional Championship.

Reed is currently a member of the USA National Team and represented the United States at the World Championships in Helsingborg, Sweden in June of the year. He took fourth-place in the Masters 4 division.
