photographing, cooking, laughing through life

Another day, another event…more pictures. #42

The event of the day was the Power Meet held at the high school.  Lifters from high schools around the area descended on the EHS gymnasium for a morning full of bench, clean and squat. I had never been to one of these events before, so it was all a new experience.  I was surprised at the intensity of some of the students…and more surprised at the intensity of the parents (and grandparents).

I was also overwhelmed at just how much some of these kids lift! Outrageous! One particular kid (from Topeka High) lifted 550(!?!?!?!) pounds in the squat! WHAT?! That’s crazy! Even the bar was bending when he lifted!  So, that is also today’s photo subject.

That's a lot of weight!
