yeah , it was a good learning experience.

Watching the video, those bench calls are harsh, your head bobs up for about half a second on the descent, but not on the press, I would've passed you. Also, the amount of time you had to touch for was pretty ridiculous. Still, great work mate.

Oh, and it sounds like that's Wim Beckelant (sp?) on the PA - he's a HUGE Belgian dude, was it him?
thanks Hazz , was delighted to get a chance to compete. It was also nice that there was a good few first time lifters there along with me so I wasn’t alone!

I had practiced pausing for 2/3 seconds so wasn’t too worried about the length of the pause,

Yeah that was the fella alright – nice guy too , was talking with him for a few minutes early in the day. You are right , he is huge!

Once again, many conggrats and I also am very proud of you. Big respect.
many thanks Jim - looking back on the day , i think you should definately do a meet if you can.

appreciate you looking in Fazc , didn’t get to chat with Mark Lane as you suggested by PM but did end up talking with a guy called John Ryan , not sure if you ever met him ? he’s the national record holder in the 82.5kg class and has done 232.5kg squat . he was really helpful on the day with loads of pointers for me.
