Welcome back to another episode of the strong and athletic podcast. Today’s guest is my friend Jalen Shabazz aka “quicktempa”. Jalen has been involved in multiple sports from a young age, mainly track and field and basketball. Initially intending to lift weight just to get stronger, Jalen transitioned gradually to Olympic weightlifting during the last two years. He has a huge potential and seems to have a bright future in front of him in the sport of Olympic weightlifting.
In this episode, we discuss Jalen’s sporting career, his transition to Olympic weightlifting, his future goals and the current state of Olympic weightlifting in the United States.
Thank you for tuning in and enjoy this episode!
