Insert Olympic Club Name Here “_____________”

22 Jul
"Insert Name"

Nothing excites me and lights the fire more than Epic Competition!  This weekend I had a chance to coach at the 2011 Olympic Lifting National Meet, a precursor to the Olympic Trials.  Saw awesome competitors make lifts that seem nearly impossible (315 Snatches & 400+ Clean and Jerks).  Our CFO BA Maria Roselle placed 11th in the nation, also qualifying for the 2012 American Open!

One thing I noticed was that many of the coaches had brought teams of lifters that have all qualified.  Through my short experience of 4 years of Olympic Lifting and 2 years of seriously training athletes I have trained 2 national Qualifiers.  I feel like I and CFO as a whole is ready to train multiple athletes( a whole team) to the National/Olympic Level!

Rule #1 is always look good. Rule #2 is always sound good so this is where our Team lifting name comes into play.  The following names are examples/nominees also throw in your own!

-Pacific Lifting Club/Crew

-Oahu Elite Lifting Club/Crew

-Pacific/Oahu Lifters Union

-Super Explosive Complete Badassness Weightlifting Club

PS Ask maria why she missed her last C&J Attempt?!?!

    I like the sound of the Pacific Lifting Club. Clubs are always cool. The word “elite”, unless you are actually a competitive, world class athlete, is not cool.
