One of his high school track coaches, Kenny Malcolm, is active in competitive weight-lifting, and encouraged Gist to give weight-lifting a try as his senior year came to a close. Gist did more than give it a try—he broke four state and national records his freshman fall at USC. He has gone on to set 11 national records and 12 state records with eye-popping numbers.
