Friday nights are always my favorite. The energy from a room full of people, teeming with the desire to put heavy shit overhead, then slam it back to the floor, is palpable. I love just being in the room.
Will Walshe, who may now be the baddest man in all of Ireland, put up a 255kg total—featuring PRs of 10kg on the Snatch and 5kg on the Clean & Jerk. I had the pleasure of being there when William Snatched 100kg for the first time at the London camp back in April, and I had the pleasure of seeing his massive 115kg lift tonight. I’ve never been anyone’s good luck charm before, but I’m available for hire.
In other mind-bending news (at least it is for me); when I asked the group who had traveled the furthest, we realized we had campers from 4 different continents attending. Let me say that again…FOUR DIFFERENT CONTINENTS. I’m pretty sure you can’t live on at least 1 continent, and I’m pretty sure we have Australia covered in January. That leaves only one inhabitable continent, South America, without representation this weekend. French Guiana, I’m disappointed in you.
The Outlaw Open equipment supplier will be announced on Monday, along with a full list of any equipment you would like to buy after the event.
And if you don’t think anything else I’ve said tonight was cool, maybe you’ll think this is…
