How I Feel Day 73!

With 73 days until I'm scheduled to compete at the 2012 Olympic Games in London people have been asking me "how do you feel?". Honestly I feel the same way I felt last week: humble, hungry, and focused on the task at hand. Making an Olympic Team is an incredible achievement but I've already done it before so my objective this time around is totally different than it was in 2008. In '08 there wasn't much buzz about me being on the squad, so naturally I was just happy to be going to China to see what would happen. Now that I've matured as a Man I know this time around it's bigger than me just going to the Olympics. I know that I have to use my platform to Glorify God and I know some people may be confused by this but my advice to you is don't worry yourself with things you don't understand. This year will be a special one for my family, USAWeightlifting, and myself. I'm excited to see the future unfold and this is how I feel 73 days out from competing.
