Congratulations to all the lifters from this years 2nd Annual CanAm Bench Press Competition. We had a great meet with 77 competitors, 47 raw, and 30 equipped. Highlights included 71 year old Canadian competitor George Flikas putting up an astounding 185 Kg (414.5 Lb) raw, Mike Wolf, 38, getting a massive 262.5 Kg (578.7 Lb) raw open, and Richard Singh, 24, pressing 325 Kg (716.5 Lb) equipped open. Thank you to Joe Smolinski for putting on the meet, the judges, who performed their duties with exacting precision and strict execution, and all the platform crew, loaders, spotters, scorers, meet staff, videographer, and anyone who lent a hand in making this meet run like clockwork.
Plans are already in the works for next year, so mark your calenders for the 3rd Annual CanAm, 19 Jul 2014. Next year promises to be a true international meet, with prospective teams from the USA, Canada, the UK, France, the Czech Republic, and even Brazil.
