Elizabeth Akinwale is an uberhuman. Seriously. This woman is a great athlete and has some great thoughts on the sport of weightlifting, women, and what the important aspects of training are that we should be focusing on.

I’m not trying to be that diesel.

By the way, did you guys notice the announcement that The King Kong Bag will be giving away a free bag to the top male and female snatch during this upcoming Snatchapalooza?!?! If you missed out on the pre-lims event you can still compete on the finals day, 16 March, but you will only be competing for Top Snatch. So start practicing and get that King Kong Bag.
