James George

I lifted at Barnholth's in 1964, where Jim was a regular prepping for the 1964 Olympics. The only other Olympic lifter I remember seeing there (once) was Chuck Vinci, who pressed 250 that day.

In June of 1964, I had the honor of lifting in competition with Jim George at the Great Lakes Championships in Erie PA. I outlifted him in the press(which was still part of lifting competition), breaking the Great Lakes record with an official lift of 307lbs. Of course, being 19 years old, I became a little cocky. Then Jim George proceeded to totally demolish me in the snatch, clean&jerk, and total. Howeve, he proved to be a great athlete, and sportsman.
