Our Man in London

The sole male weightlifter representing the U.S. in the London Olympics took the stage this morning and gave an outstanding effort, but ultimately fell just short of achieving Olympic fame. The live stream kicked-off about 4 a.m. SCBC time, but the London Live app allows viewing at a less obscene hour. Kendrick did a hell of a job. Was it a spectacular, once in a lifetime, magical performance? No, but it was solid and put him in position to attempt PRs and American Records in CnJ and in Total on his final attempt of 208 kgs, the heaviest attempt by any lifter in the B session. Kendrick missed the jerk, but came extremely close to winning the B session and to breaking his 2010 record of 203 kgs. Overall, he appeared focused and poised, went 4-for-6 on the day, and represented us well. Here’s the NBC write-up on Kendrick’s competition.

  1. Just wanted to say that I like what you're doing here.
    If you need any photo or video work, let me know and I'll do it for free.
    I currently do PR&Marketing for OU so I'm not that far.
    Keep up the good work.
