In the Warm Up Room
Watch Manuel Minginfel (Micronesia 62 kg), Yukio Peter (Naru, 77 kg) and Ramunas Vysniauskas (Lithuania, 2 x Olympian, 105 kg) get in a little training prior to competing on Saturday. Manuel and Yukio are about 5 feet tall and Ramunas is close to 6 feet tall.
Ramunas was so nice to let me take a picture with him. He apologized for his calloused, chalked "workman's hands." I told him they were beautiful hands. Manuel and Yukio are tiny, explosive gentlemen, with massive thighs.
