Roasted Pork Shoulder

Cheryl Haworth: Weightlifting

It's hard to imagine that Georgia native Cheryl Haworth struggled as a small, slight kid, but the 25-year-old powerhouse of the US weightlifting team has fond memories of a few childhood dishes. "I'm kind of famous with my friends and family for my love of barbequed ribs and Boston butts [pork shoulder]," she says. "They remind me of my Southern roots—no matter where I am in the world."
