    Spotlight on Jonathan North

    Not sure if serious, but North had a spotlight during the PanAmerican games thanks to his enthusiasm.

    http://deportesar.terra.com.ar/rumbo...0,,342958.html

    This is what weightlifting needs to grow as a sport...lul, wat?

    I appreciate his enthusiasm, but his attitude rubbed me the wrong way. You should be humble when you walk onto the platform and act like a gentleman.

    I think it's OK for lifters to have different attitudes and ways of getting the most out of themselves. However if you watched the whole competition it's clear that north lost control of himself pretty bad. This video actually did him a service! I don't know if that is a reason he isn't in Paris.

    Jon is a big ball of energy that is hard to contain. He likes to pump up the crowd, which is how he pumps himself up. Jon is just Jon.

    Yeah, weightlifting should be boring. No enthusiasm at all from the lifters.

    What I think people find funny is that his enthusiasm is off the charts but compared to their lifters he sucks.

    It is like having some kid from China come over to play basketball and watching him get more fired up about a 1-handed dunk he barely made on an open basket. We would all start laughing because LBJ or Dwight Howard would crush a dunk from 10ft out with two hands over the top of him.

    Its funny because it is world record attitude with no medal lifts.

    I'd rather have athletes celebrating like these guys than being humble. It's the only moment they have an interaction with the audience.

    Huge difference in these. These are elite athletes with exceptional performances. And in the case for Matthais it was an emotional lift to win the gold after losing his wife. Everyone can share in these emotions.

    In North's case though it comes off as funny because his performances aren't exceptional, in fact they aren't even average.

    I love the emotion in lifting and the above videos are great examples of the heart and work these lifters have put into the seconds they get to perform on that platform.

    This.
    I'm not trying to put down North in any way, its just my idea of what lifting should be like. Another thing that people fail to mention is that he was representing OUR COUNTRY. If this was a meet in the US it wouldn't bother me as much. But, holding up your singlet directly into the camera lens and saying "USA #1 Baby" when your not even winning anything while the whole western hemisphere is watching is not a smooth move.

    That's very disappointing to here that he did that... although I'm not surprised. That's like a wide receiver doing some outrageous end zone celebration when his team is 6 touchdowns behind in the fourth quarter...

    To be fair, that is the attitude of many Americans.

    So if you were representing the US you would rather go slink into the corner because you are not in first place? He's proud to be representing the US. To him the US is #1, I'd think it would be for you too.

    Do I really have to pick between two sides of a vast spectrum? I'm all for being proud of one's country, but what he did was extreme. Especially in South America where we have had a history of Imperialist policies.

    I think the US is great, and I'm proud to live here, BUT the US is not #1 in weightlifting!! This is fact!!

    I think Jon is a great lifter, but his antics were a bit over the top at this meet, WHERE HE DIDN'T EVEN WIN A MEDAL!!

    Maybe he meant USA #100?

    I think a person can be happy about a lift no matter what his level is, and show that happiness publicly. But why does he need to represent a country? I mean, good for him if he wants to take that responsibility but I wouldn't lay it on him automatically. He doesn't represent all weightlifters, all or young men who lift, or all young men, or all men! Why is the country from which he hails so big deal?

    Being proud of your country and happy with your lift is fine. Great even. The problem most people are referencing is that he chose to go from being exuberant about his own accomplishment in essentially competing with himself on that day (and being happy with the result) to making a statement implying contention with other countries. The offending part is that he then represents a country others are part of, is clearly not in competition, and makes the rest of that country look delusional with pride. Summing it up, he seemed delusional and chose to reflect that on the entire country.

    Bad Guy Jon North

    Bodybuilding.com just stabbed me in the stomach. YouTube stabbed me in the back, Tnation kicked me while I was down, go heavy spit on me, and every other forum out there hates me. You hate me, you want me gone, you donít like the attitude, and you donít like the celebrating, the enthusiasm, or my antics. Pumping up the crowd and showing emotion will get you hung. You would love to drag me to the highest tree and hang me. You would get off your coaches and all hold hands with smiles while my neck snaps, as I hang there swinging back and forth. Jon North is finally gone; Jon North is finally dead, now we can lift in peace, now he wonít embarrass his country anymore, now we can get back to our way of doing things. This sport is not welcoming; this sport has nothing but hate for me. I am not welcome here. I am an outlaw, the step son, the bad guy. I guess I have taken the roll of the bad guy. Everyone hates the bad guy, and you canít wait tell I break my leg or get hit by a bus, but thatís ok, because I am here for you to hate. I am your stress ball to squeeze on. The Attitude Nation is your shoulder to lean on.

    Attitude Nation, what these people and forums donít know is that we are made out of steel. There dull knives canít penetrate our skin. Throw your rocks and sticks, we wonít fall. Hang me from your tree, my neck doesnít break. I will never stop being me, I will never stop representing my Country, I will never stop slamming those bars, spitting on those weights and pissing you off. If you don't like me now then you are in trouble, because I will only get worse, The Attitude Nation is growing, and that means people like you will grow as well, its just human nature. We will become your worst nightmare. I am the boogie monster in your closet my friends, I am the guy you can talk **** about in front of your girl, so you look like a bad ass. I give you something to do during the day.

    I hope you sleep better at night after you write words of hate, I hope you feel better about yourselves after you cut me down, I am glad I can make you feel better about yourselves and hopefully I give you more confidence. Sleep well my angels, because tomorrow I am going to do more to piss you off, and that means you have a long day of cutting me down and coming up with more words of hate. You should all get together and find the most devil things to say to me, and I will rate them from 1 to 10. But you never share the words of hate to my face....why? Why do you hide from me? Why do you hide behind your computers? Why canít you come out and play with me? The Attitude Nation is fun, join us! Who are you? What do you do? Why do you really hate me so much? I feel bad for you, all that anger inside towards me, and you can only get out through your key board. The Attitude Nation loves you, everything will be ok, and the bad guy loves you too. Anytime you get down about your life and you need someone to take it out on, I am here for you, you can lean on me and stab me over and over all you want. You can spit on my face and throw your rocks. I will be your punching bag; I will take one for the team. The Attitude Nation is here for all you who hate us. Keep going! Donít stop! Let it out, get your feelings out, get your frustration out, go go go! The bad guy needs your fuel, the Attitude Nation runs on your hate, we need you just as much as you need us! So please never stop. Please get online right now and spread your words of hate about us, what are you waiting for!

    I want to thank you all for building my profile as an athlete bigger and bigger over the years. Your time writing about me online has made me more popular than ever. They say bad exposure is good exposure, wellÖ I would have to agree with that saying. My website is selling out weekly, I have shot three advertisements overseas this year alone, I am now sponsored by four companies, I am the proud coach of many athletes, your exposure has helped me fly all over the world teaching seminars, and last but not least your words of hate have given me the fuel to keep training harder and harder every day. Your hate keeps me making teams every year, keeps me wining national tittles every year, I am the champ because of you, I have represented my Country because of you, and I will break the American records because of you, so please donít ever leave me. I need you. The Attitude Nation thanks you! Merry Christmas! Bad Guy 2012
