Ontario Senior Weightlifting Championships 2012
Just a quick blog entry to report that I’ve attended the Ontario Senior Weightlifting Championships today, held at the NAV Centre in Cornwall, Ontario. I had the chance to watch Izzy defend her title in her weight category and take the prize for the best female lifter at the competition.
Having purchased a Canon 50D camera just before this event, I was able to take some pretty awesome shots for Izzy’s publicity and advertising campaigns. (You do know that I’m selling ad space on my head in order to raise funds for her, right? If not, head over to http://izzylifting.ca for more details!)
I also had a chance to speak with other weightlifters and I have a whole lot of photos that I’m giving away for free. So, weightlifters, expect the photos to be posted on the OWA Facebook fan page and on a Flickr account, sometime in the next few days. Do whatever you want with them! If at all possible, if you repost them online, please add this under it: “photo credit: Julie Laurin”. If you want to be contacted when the photos are made public, drop me a note at email@example.com and I’ll notify you!
Working in sports is so different from spending time on artistic shoots. But I can confirm that it is no less inspiring to witness events like this that feature such incredible human strength and power. Well done, athletes. Until we meet again.
