Those are some nice photos.

I was talking to Pope Joe about the disappearance of Olifting clubs (specifically in NYC) within the last 40 years or so. Apparently there were quite a few places to train way back when. As you would have guessed it, it all came down to $$$.

Like amateur boxing, we need some Olympic golds. Golds always inspire interest.
