Philip Grippaldi

Bobbt Hise III just recently passed on. Both Bobby as well as Phil later were involved with drugs and as a result have been rejected by the weigtlifting community for the most part. Supposidly Phil is still alive and doing well but has anger at the way he has been treated by the people in charge of Olympic Weightlifting.

Phil as well as Bon Hise III were two of the very best 198 pound lifters of their time. Both have had their later years totally distroyed by their drug use. also believe that Rick Holbrook was also addicted to drugs as well, although he died young.

I trained at the Keasbey Eagles clubhouse infrequently during Phils hey day. He was incredible. He was a really nice guy also unlike some other top lifters. It is ashamed what has happened to him since that time.
