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!
