From my family,to my girlfriend, to my friends from Joslins who always got my back, I will never forget what you gusy do for me and I will always be there for you!Special thanx to my partner and Vice President Andrew Kwan who helped me out with the event!The walkie talkies were cool too!
Also thank you to PJ, as always for helping me out the day of the event!
Also, thank you very much to my out of town friends, Joe Ferarro (for pumping up the event and announcing), Frank Lombardi (for the awesome podium and support), my referees (Jeff Joslin,Scott SChilling and Marco Costa) we had a moment of confusion but that just goes to show that we wanted to be 100% sure that we were making the right one and I thank you again for the help! I would also like to thank the event sponsors, OnTHeMat.com (look for a OSWI DVD on there website soon!!!), RioFightWear, Sports Nutrition Depot,Premier Fitness, Booster Juice and B.G.G.!
