Get Connected with Social Media

The Norwegians have done an outstanding job (in my opinion) of developing an individualized competition brand and with establishing a strong social media presence (way before the competition has started). The bar is being raised higher and higher each year. Great job organizing committee, Eline Omland and Brit Haugseng!

The organizing committee went to “extremes” in creating an amazing website. Notice the pictures from “Pulpit Rock” on the website? Check out the video of the photo shoot. Count me out!

Daily Reports

We will not be in attendance for the competition (too expensive at this point). However, we will be watching the streamed video just like most of you. We will highlight each day’s lifting with a brief report.

The majority of the meet will take place during the busy times of our schedule (morning and during work hours).
