As of early 2013, we are still in the process of rebooting unto the new platform

If you want to keep track of the relaunch you can:

  1. Like us on Facebook
  2. Follow us on Twitter
  3. Send me (Kris) an e-mail and let me know that you'd like to join the new site when it is ready.

Once we are ready to relaunch, we will start spreading the word. Until then, expect silence to mean we are heads down coding. :) The forum is still open for active members, but don't expect a lot of activity here since meets are currently on hold.

I think the biggest thanks goes to Christian for flying in and making this happen again. This was a smaller event than the epic first one two years ago but we had a great time! The weather was also warmer this year, no long pants between (or in!) attempts this time. Christian also beat the forecasted rain by finishing his deadlifts just moments before the rack got its first shower.

Meet video and results are obviously to follow, but here's a shot that I think sums up the spirit of this years' Gathering quite well. Lifter, camera man and serious weight underneath the spruces.

The meet is now with the judges having cleared the somewhat overdue weightlifting meet out of the judging pipeline. Ryan Rigdon kindly volunteered to judge and I hopped on board too (just finished my judging).

So: who wants to be the last judge? Smiley

I'll take that third judging spot if you're still looking for someone

The meet has been released! Everyone involved made Virtualmeet PRs!

Ginger: strong benching, but if possible try to get a clearer angle next time so we can actually see the bar touch (though we do know how strictly you lift!).

Nikki: your shorts length is slightly borderline as they cross the knees. Otherwise strong lifting and third place on the women's overall rankings. Well done!

Christian: can't thank you enough for flying in to Finland, it was a pleasure as usual. Smiley

Ryan and Jeff: thanks for judging, you made this meet cross the finish line!

Well thanks for organizing everything in Finland. My goal was to get over 500kg and it worked out. :-)
Once I can restart my training I will focus once again on squat depth.

Ginger: Awesome squatting. Easy to call that they are low enough.
Great benching from Nikki.
