I photoshopped this the other night.. I love it. 🙂 Julie Foucher opted to focus on Med School this year, instead of trying to balance school with competing in the 2013 Games. She won 2nd place in 2012.
Anyway, she’s someone I genuinely admire.. I look at her stats, and even though she’s sooo much smaller than me, she can clean and jerk, and snatch more than I can. Crazy! Like way more! Our deadlifts and backsquats are right about the same though. 😀
As someone who is a business owner, I can understand putting everything you have into doing what you love, following your dream, and doing what it takes to make shit happen. I also understand what it’s like to make decisions in the best interest of your business, livelihood, dreams and goals, even if those decisions may hurt or affect others. It’s a difficult thing to do. I admire her will and decision to follow her dreams of finishing medical school, knowing that maybe later she can come back and compete again.
