This past weekend, Risto Sports sponsored the 2011 Arnold Weightlifting Championships. Along with showcasing our products and services to the thousands in attendance, Risto Sports was represented by several high level athletes.
Risto’s Ivan Rojas coached the Andica brothers (Colombian National & Olympic Team) along with Gwendolyn Rojas(LG 7 yr old) and Gwendolyn Sisto (2010 World Universtity Championships).
Most notably, Yoni and Carlos Andica performances earned them top cash prizes–as well as being recognized by Arnold Schwarzenneger. LG showed some awesome technique at her first big meet, ever, and Gwen had the honor of lifting in the women’s elite session.
A huge THANK YOU to Columbus Weightlifting ( people like Mark Canella, etc) who put this meet on.
