Congrats To Christopher Drummond


I have some exciting news to announce and a congratulations is in order. Christopher Drummond has been chosen as the first athlete to help us break into a new frontier at �??Staley Training Systems�??, that of creating a sponsored athlete program.

A brief history and description of Christopher. He has been in the iron sport for over 20 years. Started out lifting weights to improve his athletic abilities as a wrestler. He quickly turned his attentions to bodybuilding and competed for several years. His accomplishments in bodybuilding include 1st place in weight class and overall in the AAU Culpeper Open, 1st in Weight Class and Overall in the NPC York Colonial Cup, 1st place in height class and Overall in the AAU Mr. Virginia, and AAU Athlete of the Year. He graduated College with a degree in exercise science and returned to get his teaching degree. He presently is a Elementary Physical Education teacher, actively teaching for 9 years now.

Three years ago Christopher switched gears and moved into power lifting, mainly as a RAW lifter. Watch for Christopher to make a HUGE splash this spring in the RAW power lifting ranks. We have very high hopes and expectations for Christopher seemingly only eclipsed by his owns goals for himself. He is currently training for three upcoming competitions where he hopes to total Elite as a RAW lifter in the 275 pound class as well as break as many as 16 current state,

Congratulations!!! Christopher

Holy hell… nice work meat!

Good stuff. Congrats and good luck to Meat!

We’ll be pulling for him here. Looking forward to updates.

Congratulations. How does one go about get sponsored in the sport of powerlifting? It is awesome to see someone’s hard work actually “pay” off.

He will go far as long as he keeps the Vagantis flare ups under control :slight_smile:

you know how hard that is for me…

and you know what the cure is…

Been viewing your videos on you tube for a while now, Meat. Congrats on the sponsorship. Is Phill also being sponsored?

Good to talk to you again. have you been holding the Westside thread together?

Phil works for Charles Staley.

Nah - I left that to Mountainman, harbinjc and novaeer. I post in the old farts forum now.

Glad to see you’re rehabbing well. I was going to follow your threads in Staley’s forums, but it started to feel too much like stalking…

you are more than welcome to come over and post with us and ask any questions you may have. the more the merrier.

how’s the training going?

I’m hoping to be recovered enough to have a good showing at the SPF Nationals next month.

Thanks man - I’ll do that!

Herniated a disk in Dec, so I’m just now getting back to my old levels. 'Bout ready to fire up the Westside approach again.

Looking forward to seeing your training for the meet online.
