Olympian Pyrros Dimas to Host Seminar in Dubai

In a matter of few weeks, a four-time Olympic and three-time world champion, Pyrros Dimas is coming to Dubai to host a seminar on the sport of weightlifting, as I reported for Sport360 newspaper.

This truly an amazing opportunity for myself, for athletes, and for the UAE to get a real picture of…

  • What is the sport of weightlifting
  • What does it entail and require to succeed
  • Challenges athlete face in the sport
  • How to improve one’s lifting and dealing with injuries
  • A real taste of a weightlifting competition

“Lifting is not considered a ‘luxurious’ sport. We are used to seeing athletes from poor countries succeed in Olympics because weightlifting is a tough sport. It is not something anyone can do.” — Pyrros Dimas, sport360.

This is not an event to miss, especially if you’re a serious athlete. I am personally very thrilled to meet an icon and to learn under him, which will help me move forward toward my goal. I will definitely be writing a follow-up piece…so stay tuned!

The seminar will be held in August 21st at the Burn Room gym, followed by a competition the next day. To read the full piece and details of the event, click HERE to open the pdf as published in the newspaper.

Until then…
