That guy does sound like a beast, though.
Yeah, I wasn't trying to imply that they'd medal in the Olympics, but there were some very respectable numbers there. Speal is an incredible athlete. The numbers would be competitive on a national level, but certainly not on the world stage. Not to be a downer, but the US isn't particularly competitive in international weightlifting. We get a few here and there, but it's not like we dominate weightlifting the way we do other sports.
