Alea goes to the Olympics!

Hey, I never said competes in the Olympics!  Although I did go to three sessions, two of them being for my own weight class…..

Had a lovely time, ran into two other women master lifters, Trisha Forbes (GBR) and Alexandra Faber (NED), pictured above.  And passed some Belgian chocolate on to a deserving Olympian who had lifted (eating after weigh-in, of course).  Could not get into the Olympic Park unless you have tickets for an event there, so just took some outside photo shots.

Very “Disney does Sports”,  with commentators, cheering sections, videos, etc.  Music was too loud for the venue, gave us older spectators a bit of a headache.
