For those of you who have participated in a lifting meet or been in any type of competition, you understand the pressure and stress one endures.  Your palms sweat, your stomach lies uneasy, your mind is swimming with everything you have practiced to get you to this point.

Now, imagine you are 10 years old.  Sure, they’re cute and you just want to hug them, but these two boys that competed at the Phat Elvis Meet yesterday were more than that.  They stood fearless in a room full of adults.  They brought their “game faces” and left their best out on the platform.  Win or lose, they knowingly exposed themselves to the world of competition where most adults will cower into the corners too afraid to fail.  Hopefully, this competition will make them hungry for more and we will continue to see their progress in future meets.
