Keiser University Orlando campus Sports Medicine and Fitness Technology students recently examined weightlifting techniques thanks to presentations from former Russian National Team Olympic lifter Maria Barnes, experienced certified athletic trainer Jeannette Feliciano, and international powerlifter Egor Rubanov.
