Greg Everett, founder and head coach of Catalyst Athletics, author of Olympic Weightlifting: A Complete Guide for Athletes & Coaches, and now filmmaker, has spent the last four years filming and producing the documentary American Weightlifting, which premieres November 16, 2013. The film chronicles the state of the sport of Olympic Weightlifting in the United States today as described in this excerpt:

American Weightlifting is the story of a sport in turmoil and the athletes and coaches whose passion drives them to succeed despite the odds. Amateur athletes and coaches with little or no financial support struggle to compete with the professionals who dominate the sport internationally. Training in garages, working full time jobs, ignored by the public and the media, American weightlifters and coaches strive to compete with the best in the world.
Got fries? A French fry sponsor would be wise to give Greg a call right away (see the end of the video as to why)!
We sat down with Greg to get his thoughts on the sport, his optimism for its future in the US, and his thoughts on a whole host of subjects (including why a French fry sponsor would be wise to give him a call right away!). If you haven’t heard him speak before, his measured and thoughtful answers will give you a lot to think about — this video interview is certainly 30 minutes well spent!
