Coach Burgener comments on our instructor

Coach B was kind enough to send these comments to me today about the instructor we have coming in for our Nov.1 Olympic Weightlifting Seminar.
This is not a certification, it is for improving your Olympic lifts.
Here's what Coach B said,

Re: Coach Burgener comments on our instructor

I have been on a number of trips with Rich Lansky, roomed with him on one or two and probably annoyed the hell out of him with my snoring. I can definately second the opinion that he is a GREAT coach. I have a Canadian athlete that I worked with in the past down with Rich right now, and he and his family have also really grown to like him. And Jessica is a great lifter, and a really nice girl.

Thanks for the great feedback!
Rich's gym is about 5 miles from mine and we get along really well.
