Congratulations to all the athletes that were at the Olympic Weightlifting competition today at the Merivale YMCA. I had the opportunity to shadow Moira Lassen, an International Olympic Weightlifting Official. What a treat! She was awesome. It was pretty exciting to see some people I know in their element, lifting weights I only dream of (!). I’ll be getting more and more involved with O-lifting as time goes on in the next few months. The sport is growing in Ottawa, and I’m getting in on the ground floor. It’s pretty cool. You just never know where you’re going to end up….
