Today, CrossFit CS took part in the United Kingdom Kettlebell Association (U.K.K.A) Border Kettlebell Competition and I am proud to say we did really well.The link is WS/FS http://www.ukka.org/competition_07.htm

We only found out about the competition 2 weeks ago so didnt have much time to prepare for it, but thanks to CrossFit we were able to cope with the kettlebell section and the throwing events - which none of us had done before

The kettlebell comp was as follows -

3 min one handed kettlebell swing

3 min kettlebell snatch

100m farmers walk as fast as possible

The throwing events were -

Kettlebell shot put

Kettlebell for distance

Single handed hammer throw

There were different weight categories for men and women. I did the swings and snatches with a 25kg KB and won first place, with 104 swings and 76 snatches. The 100m farmers walks for men was 45kg KB in each hand and I won that in 18.21 seconds

I got 22 feet 6 inches for the shot put, 29 feet 1 inch for the KB for distance and 67 feet 9 inch for the Hammer throw

I will post up the resuts from the other guys and girls later, but needless to say I am very proud of everyone of them for taking part doing so well!
