Pocket Hercules

Amy Rodriguez was so pumped after her weight workout today, that she decided to attempt a rare "double" in Olympic competition: Soccer and weight lifting. Here A-Rod goes for the world record for 5-foot-4 soccer players from Orange County, Calif., attempting a dead lift of 220 pounds.

Editor's Note: This photo is of course staged. A-Rod can't clean and jerk 220 pounds. She will not be competing in two sports. But truth be told, she can squat a bit more than that. Nod to Tara Knott, though, a former soccer player at Colorado College who won gold in weightlifting at the 2000 Olympics.
