So due to visa issues, I will not competing at the WORLDLIFTING CHAMPIONSHIPS held in Moscow, Russia this December 19th 2010.  Basically, I was given a 'tourist' voucher/invitation for an entry visa...but I needed an invitation for a 'business visa' because I am competing and they consider that business.  The guy running WORLDLIFTING has not given me the proper documentation as of yet so I am, therefore, not going.  Garbage.  If the guy at the embassy would have let us just say we were going as tourists then we would have been able to go...unfortunately for me, and honourable of him, he is a man of duty and goes by the book.
