    I'm getting some questions as to whether I have plans to do the same type of salute to other women's weight classes..especially the heavyweights. Your thoughts?

    First, there's the unfinished business of adding lightweights to the thread that have been brought up by readers. And there's my desire to post photos that do the competitors justice.
    Lots of readers/members want to have a look at the history of the heavyweights, but that may be too daunting. Especially when considering the fact that beginning in 1982 when the heavyweight class was first initiated, that division included any competitor over 123 pounds! Today many of the HW's 25 years ago would be MW's and LtHW's today. And the sheer numbers of mega-quality heavies is just overwhelming.
    I'll need to run it by Dave to see what kind of space availability there is. Plus the time it will take me to put it all together.
    MW's and LtHW's I could do much more quickly....and the LtHW's has an interesting history due to the long passage of time from 1987 when it was discontinued to its reinstatement in 2004. And on the other hand, I'm not getting any younger!

    You can do the Heavyweights last. Just continue what you are doing. Much appreciated Steve.
