[Laughing] They don’t like nobody hanging on the rim here. I’m from Beaufort, South Carolina. My name is C.J. Cummings and I’m an Olympic weightlifter. Aahh, Beaufort, Beaufort, Beaufort. Beaufort is, I mean, a nice place It’s just like a retirement place. I’m a senior in high school. School is very important cause when you get out in the real world like you’ll be prepared for it. Hey! How you doing? Hey, y’all, how you doing? What you having, Chik-Fil-A? And a fry? It’s like I’m the french fry monster just like the Cookie Monster, I’m the French Fry Monster. Wendy’s have like their fries, I like those… Bojangles have those… I like McDonald’s fries, their fries are good so it’s just like, all of them are good to me. Kinda getting hungry. Thank you! Hi, Ms. Baker! My first period class is Digital Multimedia so it’s pretty much the morning news. Good morning, Beaufort High, today is Friday, February 2nd. Yea, I like that one. I blog on the side so it’s like that kind of plays like hand in hand I can learn something from that class to take out and go and shoot. I used to play like, you know, the regular sports that everybody knows like football, basketball and baseball. And one day my sister brought me to the gym to try out weightlifting with me and my older brother. We thought it was like strength and conditioning but it was actually more like olympic weightlifting and I stuck with it ever since. This is where the magic happens. The Arnold that’s coming up in 2018 it’s exciting for me and it’s a USA competition too so like what I do there will actually matter. It’s kinda like a big deal but I’m just going with like the mindset to just go out there and have fun. My coach is Ray Jones he’s been coaching me ever since I pretty much started weightlifting. We have like, you know, a father/son relationship. Is this 25 or 20? 25! It’s two reps on both plates! I was doing two! I did that! Grab that 25 and quit stalling. That’s your lowest spot right there. Which is a great spot for you to catch it. You’ve never caught 130 that high. So that’s good. I weigh about 152 right now at the moment. And my best snatch is 141 kilos which is 310 pounds and my best clean and jerk is 185 kilos which is 407 pounds. So my goal is to push hard and make it to the Olympics in 2020. So it’s kind of a long ways from now but you know I just got to keep working, trusting the process and hopefully I’ll get there. My school is like very supportive with me and weightlifting. All the teachers and all my athletics and just like everyone just like all follows me throughout the sports and everyone like “When is the next competition?” “How’s everything going, how’s the training?” And just pretty much they’re are like a secondary coach to help me get better too. This place, I guess, raised me I’ve been born and raised here so I got to make Beaufort proud. Yea. What I need to do at the Arnold is, you know, go out there break my own personal records. Put me like back on top. Just to keep pushing and working going hard just to make myself better. This is what I worked for, for so long and just to be able to accomplish it it’s going to be competitive so I’m just looking for that and just to break the challenge.
