The 2016 American Open Championship

The calm before the lifts.

The calm before the lifts.

AO: not your local meet.  However, many who I have photographed at local meets competed this past weekend.  It was amazing to have been able to watch you lift under the bright lights in the Crystal Room at the Orlando World Center.  I felt so lucky to be have been there.

Writing isn't something I enjoy doing.  So... I will let the photos do the talking for me.  There were a few things I wanted to accomplish on this trip.  One of them being able to highlight moments of behind the scene action that goes into organizing a big meet such as the American Open Championship.

BEHIND THE SCENE

Some of the WEIGHTLIFTERS

In between being Everyday Lifters, I had the opportunity of shooting two sessions for the good people over at LiftingLife.  Andy, Ryan, Joe, Cesar, Patrick and Ian did an amazing job covering such a massive event.  Get some rest guys!
