I have been following Reese Hoffa‘s path and dream to make it to the Olympics. Not only is it close to happening, it will happen!
Also, not only did Mr. Hoffa qualify from the U.S. Track and Field Olympic Trials at Hayward Field on June 28, 2008 in Eugene, Oregon, he placed first! Christian Cantwell placed second and Adam Nelson placed third.
What a lineup. These three U.S. Olympians will definitely be a force to reckon with.
Chubarama once posted about Adam Nelson getting hypnotized as part of his conditioning to win it all in the Olympics. I remember kinda laughing at it. Sorry, Mr. Nelson, I know you guys are a team, but I’m cheering on for Reese Hoffa to win that Olympic Gold.
And then, yes, Christian Cantwell, you are one heck of a big and beefy bear.
In fact, you’re one of my favorite hot shotputters out there. You even took the Gold, placing Mr. Reese in second place, in the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Valencia on March 7, 2008. But this is a competition, and I need to take sides. I have to go with the formidable and handsome Reese Hoffa.
And this post is not complete if I don’t post certain types of photos showing why I love the sport of Shot Putting.
