As we continue on our journey of discovery and development of girevoy sport, it gives me great pleasure to meet and watch people from all walks of life prepared to give this activity a red hot go. For sure GS attracts a certain type of personality, some would even say masochistic though, to be fair, in reality that’s no different from any individual pursuit where one strives for one’s best result in competition. Sacrifices must be made, often in the context of numerous other commitments, that is, if one is to enjoy a balanced and rounded existence. The people whom I admire are those who don’t complain about workloads and knuckle down to whatever tasks are set before them--those people who are genuine and self-effacing, who achieve high results in life by sheer hard work and commitment--people who without favour give time to others and act to inspire similar qualities in others.
Two such people who aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves for GSAA are Jad Marinovic (‘Kettlebell Athletica’ gym in Melbourne Vic.) and David Tabain (‘Strength to Strength’ gym in Leeton NSW). They are contributing consistently and effectively behind the scenes to achieve, inspire and promote the development of this sport. They are infectiously enthusiastic about their goals and about what they wish to achieve to help our sport prosper. Jad and David are bright & innovative, and together with similar characters give us the drive and flexibility to enable us to achieve our aims which also include representing
at the Olympics one day. Australia
I leaned on Jad & Dave to share some personal details, some insights, goals and their views of the near future so stay tuned for interviews!. Thanks guys!
