Olympic Sliver Medalist Trains at Risto Sports to Benefit local community

Diego Salazar, of Colombia, is the 2008 Olympic Silver Medalist in weightlifting’s 62kg class, and he is training at Risto Sports for two months. Diego is training for the Arnold Schwarzenegger Sports Expo in Columbus, Ohio March 1-3.  He will also give a presentation at the International Weightlifting Conference, hosted by Risto Sports, March 16 and 17 2013.

Diego is a true professional athlete: he trains intensely, methodically, and pays close attention to his diet and recovery.    He is very inspirational to our lifters.  Upon asking him what was the mental secrets to his phenomenal competition results – he says only, “Train hard, and the competition will be easy”.   To support Risto Sports’ local community, Diego and Coach Ivan Rojas even volunteered to teach a weightlifting class at the Marshwood Middle School.  See photos of Diego training, his recovery work, and coaching Marshwood Middle School kids here:
