here is a post from Latt off grow or die:
"Just so everyone knows, I will not be attending the Arnold Classic bench comp. In fact, I will not be lifitng in the WPO or APF any longer.
Kieran Kidder has made a rash, unthinking decision, and thrown me out of both organizations. He sent me several very nasty, insulting emails on the subject, that I will not post due to the extreme vulgarity.
Why did he throw me out? I sent him an email asking why his internet posts were so rude towards the WPO lifters. I was polite, and trying to understand and be helpful. I recieved threats, insults, and outright fictional accounts of my performance.
Of course, like all humans, I have had some less than perfect moments, and unfortunately, one of them happened in public. But, as many who really know me can say, I try to be a good person, and I do my best to support this sport and others in it. I will continue to do so, with or without the WPO/APF.
So, I will be taking a different route in powerlifting in the near future. Kidder may think he rules powerlifting, but he is, in fact, simply a guy with some money who is on an ego trip. I won't let someone like that get in the path of my success.
So that is the story, in case anybody wanted to know.
This is such bull shit. KK is such an egotistical asshole and really doesn't deserve to be running that organization. But Latt is one of the nicest guys in PLing and I wish him the best.
