Nicu Vlad

Here's a photo I came accross the other day of me with world and olympic weightlifting champion, Nicu Vlad.  Nicu, along with a few other Bulgarian and Romanian lifters, competed for Australia in the mid-nineties.  I was fortunate to meet him and watch him train at the National Championships in Canberra in 1995 (I think).  I was one of the assistant coaches for the Queensland team then.  To watch him train was amazing.  He was easily snatching 200 kilos for reps(!) a few days before competing.  Outrageous!
