Visiting ELEIKO...

On Sunday we had  a game against Halmstad (which we unfortunatelly lost) and headcoach, second physio and me took the opportunity to visit ELEIKO company, the world leader in the olympic weighlifting equipment. 

Erik Blomberg, the new CEO of the company was kind enough to give us guided tour through the assembly line and training center along with giving us some very interesting history about the ELEIKO (you can see great presentation here).  In this training center coach Charles Poliquin and Paul Chek host their seminars.
I have really enjoyed the visit since I always wanted to get in touch with ELEIKO and working in Sweden for Hammarby IF allowed me such a great opportunity.  I am also thankful to my friend Boris Šimurina for introducing Erik to me. 

I am posting some of the pictures from the visit.  

Knurling on the bar is actually waffle pattern...

I just snatched this for tripple... :)

Rope ergometers - great for wrestlers, MMA fighters and cross-training workouts

See what I did there? Olympic rings :)
