After watching UFC yesterday, I went to the International Hispanic Games.
My camera ran out of batteries halfway through the men's lifts and I was sad because I got zero pictures of one of the guys was such a rock star. He missed his first two snatches but kept adding weight anyway and got his third snatch. He also clean + jerked some ridiculous weight. As in, like, our collective jaws dropped--it was really incredible. I think his total was 305. Anyway, I didn't get his picture, but I got to shake his hand.
The female lifters, mostly school age, were also incredibly inspiring. It was cool to see people who came up from Sonora, and of course I think Coach Joe Micela is bordering on genius. Team Arizona represented very well (as always.)
Sorry for the blurry photos, I got my digital camera for free.
