Extremely sorry for the OT but State Gold Medalist?! Damn! Congratulations! I am consistently surprised by the variety of people that frequent a tech forum.Calibrated Olympic Bumper Plates from Capital Fitnessh. These were used (with care) for weightlifting training and helped in making a State Gold Medalist.
Also, I genuinely had a question; what's the difference between regular weights and these ones? As in similar amount of kgs. (just not Olympic) is showing about 5K or thereabouts on Amazon, so why should anyone choose this? I guess what I'm asking is, what does the Olympic tag actually mean in this context?
Fair warning, I have absolutely no intention of buying, just curious. Again, sorry for the OT. Please feel free to disregard.
