Spent a great afternoon at Crossfit Taranis watching the powerlifters. It was great to see so many members out to support Ray. He was in a class of his own.
At a Powerlifting meet, competitors take part in three disciplines: Back Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift. Lots of local lifters and visitors too, ranging from grade 10 students to competitors in their 60’s. Not to mention Special Olympic competitors.
Something else that was noticible was the support and encouragement that the lifters gave each other. Much like Crossfit, the competitors were rooting for their competition to make their lifts. It was a great introduction to the sport. Made me want to go lift some heavy stuff and put it down.
Stay tuned for more from Ray.
