For me, this is not just another medal to add to the collection. This medal represents a lot more. A hobby turned into a passion. The past 3 months. Cutting down a weight class to 69kg, saying no all the good stuff in life (cookies, ice cream, booze), all the hungry days, all the bad training days where you miss 80%, the injuries, sprains, lacerations and bruises, getting in the gym day in and day out, training smarter, knowing when to pull back and when to push through. This was worth it all.
. . .
I went 6 for 6 today at The Holiday Open in Garden City. Hit a 90kg snatch and 111kg Clean and Jerk. Both of which are competition PRs on top of hitting them at a lower weight class than my previous PRs. I finally broke 200 with a 201kg total!!!!! Goes to show you how the right plan will yield results as long as you dedicate yourself and put the work in. . . .
Thank you so much to @johnmoody6
