You’ve heard that phrase before, right?  Well this one blew me away.  Check out the focus of Special Olympics Team USA powerlifter Jermaine Edie from New York.  He was lifting more than 400 lbs. at the time, I think, which was amazing to watch in person but apparently no small feat for him. He apparently holds the Special Olympics NY records in both Bench Press (265 lbs) and Dead lift (550 lbs).  Visit Special Olympics NY webpage to learn more about Jermaine and all of the athletes they are sending to Athens. (*Special thanks to volunteer photographer Nancy Brown  for taking this amazing photo!)
