Here is a picture I took of Christine during a powerlifting meet. I like this one a lot.
Champion powerlifters Christine and Roger Neff medalled in the 2011 USPA NW Summer Powerlifting Open at Elite Performance Center in Portland, Oregon.

I was extremely fortunate to receive personal instruction from Tommy Kono during his annual visit to Bodytribe Fitness in Sacramento during the weekend of the Tommy Kono Open VI. Here is the first installment from our time together. This addresses the snatch squat - bouncing out of the hole and proper foot width.
Tommy Kono Pt 1: Snatch Squat
Until one is committed
There is hesitancy, the chance to draw back
Concerning all acts of initiative (and Creation)
There is one elementary truth
The ignorance which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:
That the moment that one definitely commits oneself
Then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one
That would never otherwise have occurred.
A whole stream of events issues from the decision
Raising in one’s favor all manner
Of unforeseen incidents and meetings
And material substance
Which no one could have dreamt
Would have come your way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
