The Kono: 9 years and still going.

August 9, 2015

The team competed yesterday for the first time under the new name, new gym, new life.  Jake took first and Emelie took second overall by sinclair.  Jen took a shot at the AO total.  Alexa and Conor competed in their first meets.  Zander closed in on his goal of breaking the master’s American record clean and jerk for his category.  Sammi hit the AO total at a different weight class.  Paige, Katie, Heather H and Yezmin got out there and represented well.  It was an overall success.  And it wouldn’t have happened without the rest of the team there to support.  I taught a number of my people yesterday how to count attempts and help in the warm-up area.  It ended up being a beautiful symphony of communication.  Thank you Heather, Deb, Alexa, Nick, Paige, and even you, Nile. Together we made it happen.

The photo on the left was taken 9 years ago at the first Kono.  I feel like Tommy has probably aged better than me.
