Gregor, Nat, and Dr Boffa check in while Gregor makes the drive from Berlin to Tramelan, Switzerland, for the 49th “Challenge 210” competition—a Bronze level Olympic qualifier that will feature many (most?) athletes from China’s A squad (seriously). Random musings, conversations about Gregor’s rental car, and road noise ensue. Enjoy!
Even MORE ramblings from Bangkok! Some thoughts on the competition and who may end up in Tokyo 2020, among other topics. Recorded in a less-than-ideal restaurant setting, so audio is a little bit dicey at times, but (with any luck) the solid gold content still comes through. Enjoy!
Just a little breakfast café chat post-2019 Worlds from Bangkok. Includes Nat Arem, Dr Boffa, Steve Galvan, and Gregor Winter. Enjoy!
A few of us (finally) left the
compound hotel grounds for some food after the women’s 81A and men’s 102A. Banter ensued, as well as a surprise visit by an Olympic Champion. Enjoy!
Some late-night ramblings following a couple of *amazing* days of lifting. We try to cover everything: Shi Zhiyong and the men’s 73s, Kuo Hsing-chun and the women’s 59s, Deng Wei and the Tomanator in the 64s, and of course Lu Xiaojun and the 81s. Enjoy!
A quick breakfast conversation with Hidilyn Diaz of the Philippines, bronze medalist in the 55kg class, recorded the morning after her competition. Enjoy!
Quick update with some random recordings—including a little chat with Meso’s physio—at the 2019 Worlds! The packed schedule and astonishingly slow internet have made podcasting a bit challenging, but with any luck there will be more soon! Enjoy!
Some (very) random updates from the first day when we’re all in Thailand. Includes lots of incoherent and jet-lagged ramblings by podcast regulars as well as some special new guests. Enjoy!
The first field report from the 2019 Worlds in Thailand, before the meet has even begun! Gregor of ATG and Nat of hookgrip are already on the ground sharing their thoughts. Enjoy!
