Athlete of the Year
Natural Athlete Strength Association president Rich Peters, right, recently presented Larry Donahue with the trophy and jacket for Overall Athlete of the Year at NASA’s annual banquet in Oklahoma City, Okla. Donahue, 65, of Sidney, Ohio, is a 1965 graduate of Washington High School and a 1974 graduate of California University of Pennsylvania. He was employed at the Washington YMCA before moving to Fort Madison, Iowa, and later Sidney. The award is presented to one of the association’s 3,000 athletes who competes in national meets, ranks in the top 100 of his events, assists with the association’s work, is a record-holder and is willing to help other lifters. Donahue also received the Masters 3 Award for 60- to 69-year-old power lifters and was runner-up for male referee. He and his wife, Hazel, were runners-up for meet director assistant. Donahue competed in the unequipped power-lifting meet before the banquet and placed first with a 275-pound squat, 215-pound bench press and 330-pound deadlift for 820 pounds. His bench press and deadlift total also earned him first place in the unequipped push/pull event in the Masters 3 Division and second place in the Masters Pure Division. Donahue, who has won four world titles, will represent NASA at the USA Nationals in Laughlin, Nev., in June.
