If you think of heroes of weightlifting and Donny Shankle is not in your top 5, you need your head examining. What better to kick off our new olympic weightlifting poster range than the big man himself’s famous quote.
A five-time USA national champion and member of the world weightlifting team. Donny is the only weightlifter in the United States to beat a defending world champion in competition in over thirty years.
Rip the head off a god damned lion
His famous quote ‘pull the bar like you’re ripping the head off a god-damned lion’ is legendary, so it was the obvious choice for this poster. In the olympic lifting poster range we feature three quotes from three legends of the sport.
Again, this is the first poster in our olympic weightlifting poster collection. These posters make an excellent addition to any weightlifting or CrossFit gym’s walls. As always, these are on museum quality matte poster paper of the highest quality.
