it has to inspire us all to grow this sport, get more lifters involved, run meets, recruit, do whatever possible to get more numbers, increase the quantity AND quality of lifters to get a full team someday. -g
i know i am dad, but in this situation i am a coach. the world championships are critical to our qualifying our athletes. had kendrick had his 362 day at the wc we would have probably taken 4 people. had cody gibbs totaled i am sure we would have 4 athletes in the olympics. chad has never been a good international competitor, kendrick has not lived up to his potential in the past but he really came thru at the games.....i hope this will be the case for future teams. my suggestion is that the coach/athlete be super conservative for openers at the worlds to get in as many pure totals as possible. you never know at the end of the day where you will be left standing.....in 03 greg schouten and chad bombed.....had they totaled pete kelly, and casey would have gone to the games in athens!!! personally giving chad's international experience and results why start him heavy at all.
I've written about it a couple of times with no response - not that I expect much, considering I'm nobody in particular.
