Re: Weightlifting in the US

Wow, Bob Takano posting here, cool. Welcome Bob.

I think CrossFit will bring a huge amount of new interest in weightlifting, but the trickle down to actual competition will be small. Most Crossfitters will be starting to late to become serious high level competitors, and not be willing to give up everything else in favor of the sport. So there wont be a giant improvement of US international standings. At the same time, every little bit helps. Where the impact will be felt is with those who decide to continue on i the sport coaching youth.
