Olympic Weightlifting Workshop/USAW Coaching Course Opportunity in Thailand

All:

I already posted in "Competitions" that we're hosting an Olympic weightlifting competition in January, and wanted to let people here know about two courses we are hosting that might be of interest to CrossFitters in Asia (as well as CrossFitters traveling in Asia).

1. WORKSHOP: We're hosting a 2 day workshop focused on the Olympic lifts (snatch and clean & jerk) January 2-3, 2013.

2. USAW Coaching Course: We're also hosting a USAW level 1 Olympic lifting coaching course January 4-5 (see http://secure.mycart.net/catalogs/ca...showprevnext=1 for registration (link WFS)).

3. We'll have a sanctioned USAW competition on January 5th.

The coaches for the workshop and USAW Level 1 are Mark Cannella and Drew Dillon. They are both outstanding coaches. Mark is 2012 Olympic team member Holley Mangold's coach, and he also organizes the Arnold Olympic Weightlifting Competition. Drew is an accomplished lifter and talented coach in his own right, and accompanied Mark and Holley to London as her assistant coach.

I've decided to host these courses to benefit CrossFitters, affiliates and others in Asia. Please pass this on to folks who might benefit and who will be interested.

I've also heard from a number of people about traveling out to Chiang Mai to do a course like this as a part of a larger vacation/holiday. Let us know if you're thinking of that and we can recommend the best way to make that happen.

For more information about how to register, and other course details, go to http://www.crossfitchiangmai.com/p/w...ng-course.html (link WFS).

If there is interest, maybe in the summer -- but getting the coaches out here is hard at that time.

For flights, if you come in a couple days early it isn't too bad -- check Air Asia, they are running discounts to Chiang Mai all the time.

Yes, lots of cheap hotels! Email us (info@crossfitchiangmai.com) once you decide to come and we'll send you a couple we recommend to get started. Then you can do that or google. What you spend on airfare you can save on hotel. $10-$30 a day easy for a place to stay that is decent.
