2017 USAPL Spring Forward Championship - Gardiner, NY

Second meet is in the books! Overall I went 9 for 9, PR'ed on all 3 of my lifts and added 20 kg to my total from my first competition. I had a LOT of fun at this one which was at an amazing venue, had strong competitors across genders/weight classes and an energetic crowd as well. It was awesome to compete alongside my friends of the Catch22 NYC Dragon Boat Barbell Crew who made a strong showing both on the platform and as a cheering squad. Congratulations to Coach Sean of Murder of Crows Barbell Club and Yuechuan Sun for taking first and second place in the 74 kg class, and Dave J Woo for first place in the 105 and Best Overall Male Lifter with just monster performances. Much much thanks to Alfred Winghong Jong of The Strength Guys for coaching and schooling me to the game!!

Last but certainly not least is the woman in my life without whom I literally could not do this, my wife Maureen Lee! Thank you for being my biggest fan, healthy food chef, life coach, PR/marketing strategist and always my source of strength. She also compiled my lifts into this following video! Competing and hitting PRs is fun and all, but my deepest sense of happiness and gratitude from all this comes from your unconditional support, love and encouragement. I love you and thank you for keeping me on track mentally, physically and emotionally--I can't wait to lose my voice cheering for you at your dragon boat races this summer!!
