Get your kids in Olympic weightlifting! The sport needs kids starting
as early as 7 or 8! The sport of weightlifting needs to have kids
start at a younger age, preparing them early so they can be ready to
make an Olympic team and start winning Gold medals for the USA! The younger our athletes start the stronger, more efficient and more experienced
they will be when they get in there prime.
Its a shame how
weightlifting is not a varsity sport. Why is not? Why is throwing a
medal ball as far as you can a college sport and a varsity sport but
not weightlifting? Why can you get a full ride to college for golf, a
non Olympic sport but not weightlifting? Its bullshit. I would have
never played football or soccer if I could join the weightlifting team
in middle school or high school. Its sad how these kids don’t have the
option to enjoy the great sport of weightlifting.
The kids I coach
love it, and they always ask me, â??hey coach Jon, can I get a
scholarship weightliftingâ??? I say no you cant, and then most of them
leave the sport and play a sport that they can get there college payed
for , and I don’t blame them! Did you know that weightlifting use to
be apart of track and field. What happend? I am getting pissed just
talking about it, good by.
