Meet Summary by Brian Schwab
Thanks to everyone involved for making yet another Orlando Barbell meet a huge success. Thanks to everyone from Orlando Barbell for helping to move equipment, spot, load, judge, score, announce, and everything else involved. I'd list you all off, but am afraid I'd end up leaving someone out.
Thanks to Tampa Barbell and Space Coast Barbell for providing us with their monolifts to use as well as some great lifting by their team members.
Thanks to Southside Barbell and the Fort Myers Power Performance Team for bringing their teams to compete as well.
Thanks to our sponsors EliteFTS, Critical Bench, and my client Al Reiss.
I have to congratulate my training partners who competed. Kalin Chester, Mark Lessmann, Tom Walyus, and Jim Lynch all got at least one PR.
