The sports of weightlifting, bodybuilding and others like them, have invaded the Four Corners area. On June 28, in the City Market parking lot, Kyle Atcitty coordinated his first weightlifting competition.
"Right now weightlifting is starting to come up," he said. "I know a lot of Natives who have been pretty strong. We go and compete with them. You see a lot of the Natives there that are strong, that are fit."
But there are still a few out there who aren't. That's why Atcitty decided to put on a challenge.
The challenge started out as a health expo that included a weightlifting aspect, but Atcitty said many of the expo participants didn't show.
