Many thanks to Quint Fischer (CF Balance) and John Filippini (CF South Baltimore) for putting together an excellent inaugural meet. John did a great job putting the meet together, getting it sanctioned, and then coordinating and running the entire show on Saturday. In Quint’s own words:
“This past [Saturday] was the first-ever Capital City Open at Balance Gym Kalorama right here in Washington, DC. Personally, I think it was a huge success. Over 55 lifters competed, male and female, ranging from a bright-eyed 16 year-old kid to a 40 year-old former Lebanese National Team member.” (excerpted from Quint’s blog: Becoming The Bull)
Congratulations to all. Stay tuned for more adventures in weightlifting, as two more Olympic meets are on the horizon: East Coast Classic (April 7-8, Moorestown, NJ) and Blue Ridge Open (May 21, Bridgewater, VA).
