I started competing raw in I believe raw is what real powerlifting is…. I will do everything in my power to help grow raw lifting and im glad to see you and Brandon supporting raw!

If you used gear say what kind. If you use performance enhancers even those just banned by the NCAA — stand up and say so. If you are raw, state what your fed defines as raw.
We have an International governing body in the IPF and I feel our sport would have a lot more traction and popularity if we all gravitated toward IPF rules.
For a newcomer to the sport just seeing the list of hundreds of feds and trying to decipher what is and is not allowed can be daunting and ultimately turn people away to other things. Lift how you want to lift — but for the sake of the sport can we try to do it under five or less federations?

This would also lead to the rich rewards of such success and he soon became the highest paid athlete ever in track and field with sponsors queuing up for him to front various campaigns. With Bolt breaking record after record and etching off milliseconds of his times bit by bit, you can easily understand why.

Moreover, with 20 million people in the UK alone watching Bolt clock his second fastest time ever in Beijing, aided by his unique personality, character and, as some would argue, arrogance, helped build the perfect profile. So how did Bolt get to this point in his career and why is he so fast?2014 Raw United record breaker
Bolt was born on 21 August in Trelawny, Jamaica, and grew up with his parents, Wellesley and Jennifer Bolt, his brother Sadiki and his sister Sherine. Bolt spent his time playing cricket and football in the street with his brother as a kid with the latter in particular a keen interest and is a huge Manchester United fan.
When meeting then manager Sir Alex Ferguson inBolt pleaded for a trail at the club but, sadly, athletics needed him more. It was at Waldensia Primary where he first began to show his sprinting potential, running in the annual national primary-schools' meeting for his parish.
By the age of twelve, Bolt had become the school's fastest runner over the metres distance. Bolt continued to explore other sports and it was his cricket coach in fact that urged him to try track and field events. So an athletics career would get underway and Bolt won his first annual high school championships medal intaking the silver medal in the metres with a time of Under the guidance of new coach Fitz Coleman, Bolt turned professional in In his early days as well as up until the current day, Bolt has often been accused of being lazy and taking a far too relaxed stance towards his training, diet and overall performance throughout his career, especially in his earlier days.
He was often pressured to move to America to realise his full potential but knocked back continuous demands and remained in Jamaica, his home.
