Jim Schmitz, the dean of United States Olympic weightlifting coaches, gave an inspiring talk at our club's March 22 meeting over breakfast at the Franciscan Crab Restaurant. Jim coached Team USA weightlifters at the 1980, 1988 and 1992 Olympics. He noted that women have been participants in USA weightlifting since 1988. Jim has authored books on weightlifting. He trains people of all ages at the Sports Palace in South San Francisco, and conducts training for coaches as well.
