Olympic Lifting in Canada?


#1

Hey coach, was hoping you could give me a hand.

I'm interested in starting olympic lifting, after I'm recovered from my recent surgery, where could I go about finding a coach in atlantic canada?


#2

Depends how Atlantic you are. I assume you mean Nova Scotia, N-B, P-E-I and N-F, but if you are close to Quebec, you can go to Centre Claude-Robillard where Pierre Roy is coaching. It doesn’t come any better than that in North America!


#3

Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be an option at the moment. Nothing further east?


#4

Unfortunately not! Hope Chris or someone else can help

which province you in? I’m sure you can find something in Halifax…

Surely, the Maritimes used to be pretty strong country-wise in olympic lifting.

My friend, and former client Manos Volikakis might still be in Halifax (well St-FX) as he was the strength coach for the St-FX football team for a while. You might want to try and look him up.
