This competition promised to be different to all other CrossFit competitions in the UK, and it certainly was. From the beginning, it was clear that there was going to be some running and swimming in this competition. I’m not the best at either of these, but thought this competition sounded fun and that the swim and run wouldn’t be too bad. I was wrong!
In 2016 I was gutted that I couldn’t compete at the BodyPower Games due to other commitments, so in 2017 I was determined to make sure I did. Based within the BodyPower Expo from Friday until Sunday this event was huge and looked amazing on the pictures. I had planned on going individual, but just before the qualifiers were announced Mr Craig Richey himself asked me to be part of Team Richey… Of course, I jumped at the chance.
Over the moon that Dale Hancock has made this for me 🙂
It sums up nicely how tough this workout was!!!
Battle of Britain is renowned for attracting some of the UKs top athletes and 2017’s competition was no different. I had been waiting since the qualifiers in January for what was to be a fantastic day of three deceptively disgusting workouts. Luckily, Form Leeds had four athletes who had qualified for the finals and so I knew at least three other athletes on the day. Once I got there, the venue was full of familiar faces which always calms the nerves. I had managed to qualify in 25th position, but would I climb up the leaderboard on the day?
