Eleiko, the world famous barbell company, is accepting nominations for its US$5,000 scholarship for a deserving weightlifter.
Chinese weightlifting star Zhang Guozheng squat jerks his opener, 187.5 kg, at the 2003 World Weightlifting Championships (Vancouver, British Columbia). Zhang Guozheng and his teammate Shi Zhiyong, both gold medalists at the Athens Olympics, along with their coach, Chen Wenbin, will exhibit their extraordinary talent at the 2005 Arnold. Consider this an hors d'oeuvre for the Beijing Olympics. IronMind® | Randall J. Strossen, Ph.D. photo.
