Competed in Olympic Weightlifting 1969-73; 80/81 Returned to Olympic Weightlifting (Masters) 2011 Coach OLY lifts at CF Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, where they have converted me to CrossFit. Started CrossFit October 2011 and more seriously in January 2012 with Coach Kevin Bowles and Cam Cassidy. Since then I have been the Weightlifting Coach and CF Trainer at CF Oshawa. Just recently recovered from significant deltoid/tendon injury but feeling ok to give the Open and the Canadian Masters Weightlifting another try. Still awed by the level of athleticism of last year's Masters so this will be no easy task.
