    If you want to see what an Oly competition (officially) looks like, you can go here:  

    http://weightlifting.teamusa.org/news/2012/02/13/national-olympic-trials-webcast-info/46625?ngb_id=34  The link for the video is under each days schedule.  The Big Dudes are early on Saturday the 3rd and some seriously strong ladies (who are TINY ) go afterwards.  It is AMAZING how strong everyone is in this competition.  You can just fast forward through the videos and watch a few lifts.  Its pretty inspiring.   Also, I did last years Oly meet and it was a blast.  You aren’t doing it to win really, but to get a PR!  Come compete!!!! It is very motivating.

    I like how Chris Spealler’s presence in the photo isn’t even mentioned. “Here’s our other friend, Chris!”

    Damn good lookin group right there…but who’s that guy on the right who’s definitely not very athletic?
    Everyone with any interest should do the Oly meet on Saturday.  Gonna be super fun…take it from someone that doesn’t even do much Oly, but is still gonna be there!

    JIC you missed it, Chris Spealler is one of the CF legends, as in 106 pullups in 1:36. Keep an eye out for some serious CF royalty coming through the gym.
