Reginald Lominy, a former Beat the Streets wrestler, placed ninth at the USA Weightlifting Junior Championships in Aurora, Colorado on Sunday. He successfully lifted 106 kg (234 lbs) in the snatch, and 125 kg (276 lbs) in the clean and jerk, the two Olympic weightlifting events. He was in the 94 kg (207 lbs) weight class.

Lominy, a Brooklyn native, began coming to Beat the Streets to wrestle in 2011, the end of his sophomore year at Wingate high school. He had often seen the team practicing after school while he worked out in the weight room. When Coach Steve Flanagan asked him if he wanted to try out one day, he agreed—and made the team.
