Some of Albany's all-time best weightlifters will be honored this weekend.

Tony's Westside Athletic Club is organizing the Albany Weightlifting Hall of Fame Banquet.

Board members selected 31 initial inductees.

The banquet will recognize their accomplishments in weightlifting and in the Albany community.

"We just didn't have anything that recognized those individuals and those are people that it's an individual kind of sport and accomplishment,” said Tony Powell. “So they make a decision everyday whether to come to the gym, to eat clean."

The event is Saturday at 6:00 p.m. at the Nelson-Tift Building downtown.

Tickets are $15 per person or you can get a table for 8 for $100. For more information contact Tony's Gym at 229-483-9977.
