Very cool videos (the 130 C&J miss doesn’t load for me though) but the exchange between what I presume is your wife and daughter in the first video is my favorite part.
Wife: Be sure to cheer really loud. C’mon John!
Daughter: C’mon John!
Wife: Call him Daddy, honey.
Daughter: C’mon Daddy.
Now that’s funny.
I had no idea there were comps at Summerfest though, how long that been going on? What were all the events?[/quote]
Yes I thought that was great. That was actually my 4-year old SON’s high pitched voice. I am expecting puberty to help alleviate that confusion. Ha!
The summerfest open has been going on for a decade or more I think. Not sure exactly but I’ve done it the past three years and I’ve talked to people that said they competed in it about 5 times and it wasn’t during the past three that I’ve been in.
The competition has three weight classes, lightweight (165-), Middleweight (165-220), and Heavyweight (220+). For some reason they put me in the heavyweight category for C&J and middleweight for the deadlift. I weighed in at 217.4.
I was disappointed with my C&J weights. 130kg is usually not too difficult for me but my knee’s were hurting so bad I just couldn’t do much with the clean or the jerk movements. I was hoping to hit 140kg today. Luckily I still managed first place for the heavyweights (overall winner was a middleweight with 160kg).
The clean and jerk and deadlift are the only movements.
I’d like to see someone put on a strongman competition at summerfest in the future.
Try loading the 130kg c&j again, it should be good now. It appears to have taken a long time to get posted on youtube.
