A laugh with Dave Castro
If you know Jacob Heppner you know in 2018 there was an Open workout with a standard for HSPU he did not agree with. He hadn’t seen Dave Castro since they made up that standard.
Getting ready to get debriefed for one of the Games’ workouts, Dave was about to announce the next workout to the 40 or 50 people sitting there, but instead Castro calls him forward first.
Dave was sitting in the middle of the floor, Heppner goes to him, his back against all the athletes, when Castro pulls a tape measure out of his pocket. What happened next confused Heppner, as Castro asked to measure his forearm against the athlete’s.
Heppner found it funny to see that side of Castro and said “the past is the past”. He found it fun to sit with the guy who probably made the rule that meant he didn’t qualify for the Games and be able to laugh about it.
