Albany Weight Lifting Hall of Fame

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - More than two dozens Albany residents were inducted into the Albany Weight Lifting Hall of Fame.

On Saturday, each person was presented with an award, and allowed to give a short speech.

Organizer Tony Powell says this was inspirational, and a great opportunity for old friends to get together

"Its so inspirational and people are really honored. And there's people who haven't seen other lifters in 20 or 30 years. And it's just a gathering of old friends and old training partners," says coordinator Tony Powell.

He says they plan to make this an annual event.
