Kim Yuna got a silver medal in 2014. Koreans were pissed, thinking she deserved the gold.

That could only be from corruption from the judges. It certainly couldn't be the fact that she was 4 years older than when she won gold and that 4 years is like 20 years in non-athlete years.

When I worked in Harlem with disadvanted youth…

As a Canadian, was it hard to get a work visa? Maybe a job most Americans don’t want to do so more apt to import foreigners for that? How was it? I worked with disadvantaged youth, too. Tiring. Hard to make progress. But everyone’s experience is different. Different jobs suit different personalities / skill sets.

Figure skating isn't THAT obscure. It's probably the premier Winter Olympics event along with ice hockey (for hockey nations).

Off the top of my head...Nancy Kerrigan, Tonya Harding  Kristi Yamaguchi, Brian Boitano, Torville&Dean, Surya Bonaly, Oksana Baiul all had fairly decent name recognition (albeit often for various reasons). Wouldn't be surprised if anyone didnt know them, but not obscure.

It's not like weightlifting or moguls.

Torville&Dean

There's a blast from the past. I'd totally forgotten about them. The darling Brits of the 80s.

I woke up late today so only had around 45 minutes to workout this morning, which was fine because there shouldn't be that many people at the gym, so I should be able to circuit train between all of the machines.

I get to the gym and sure enough, there are only three other people in the gym. Fantastic.

So I get started on my workout. And then 2 of the 3 other people start circuit training, too. And they want to use all of the same machines that I want to, and every time one takes a machine that I was just about to use, the other one takes up the other one that I was going to use as an alternative.

This keeps happening for the entire workout, even when I shift from doing upper to lower. It felt so coordinated, lol. I ended up working on cardio instead because my time was too limited to deal with the BS. I'm gonna have to go back in the evening.

Serves me right for getting up so late, I guess.

One of the perks of having a home gym, I don't have to deal with that. :P
Though, one of the downsides, is I don't have a lot of different equipment, so I'm limited to what I can do (though, you can do a lot with a small amount).
But, sucks that they did that to you. :(

For my rant: my new pc arrived just before chuseok, but the psu or mobo was damaged and it wouldn't turn on, the seller sends out a new one of the same specs, and gets the broken one picked up, but the new one has been stuck in a warehouse waiting to be delivered to my local depot for 2 weeks (almost) :(

Only psychopaths and 70yr olds workout before 11AM.

Seriously, I just cant, my body feels way too sluggish. The worst is when you get the group of 6 guys taking turns on the damn squat rack. On weekends, I'll have a heavy breakfast and go at around 2pm (I skip lunch), then I'll have a huge supper. In the week, it's between 5-6pm for the gym or track or earlier if I can sneak out.

On a related note, I completely fried my CNS last week and got sick. 2 months of sprinting and lifting for PBs wasn't a smart idea. I've been on my ass the whole of last week and will be this week too, CNS recovery (after getting fried) takes 6 times longer than muscle recovery.

thats why this psychopath goes at 6am! there's only 3 or 4 old people at that time and none of them squat deadlift or bench. sometimes a random new young person will show up but most of them fall off after a week or two. the power rack is all mine from 6-7 :)

ill definitely be switching to a home gym back in the US though

When I was in NZ I loved going at 9am, and getting it done in the morning.
Here, even with my equipment at home, I typically won't start until around 3pm at the earliest, but am trying to change it to the mornings when I have a day off, and Sundays :P

Sorry to hear about you sickness / injury. :(

I totally hear you, but I do my running at 0515 because I literally have no other time to do it. Just too busy these days. :sad:

Reading this, I envisioned CNS to be something completely different, including spinal/brain damage etc and was ready with some snarky comment relating to that.
But, luckily, I decided to look it up first and subsequently learned something new today. Thanks for that!

If the 'local depot' is the main hub, then you can take your ID and pick it up from them directly. I have done that 3 times when they had taken too much time to deliver, for whatever reason. You'll need your ID, have to sign a couple of papers, verify the sender's address and such, then it will be released to you. Good Luck!
