A video of a clean and jerk in competition at the 2008 Arnold Classic. The vid itself is probably nothing new to any of you, but the reason I post is the comments below it.
"If it weren’t for the steroids, I would encourage other women to look up to her. "
"Is it possible for a human being of that size to lift that amount of weight without being aided by a substantial amount of testosterone–(wherever it might have come from)? "
Is this just another case of people being ignorant to the sport and dedication involved? Or am I being naive in believing that she’s clean of substances. I assumed, as an Olympic athlete and mother of three, she was a natural trainee and understood what it takes to be the best at something.
