Please join me in congratulating Tim, Sofia and Leisa with successfully finishing their first Kettlebell competition! Leisa achieved Rank 1 in the GPP category, snatching the kettlebell 185 times! Sofia got Rank 2 in the GPP category with 130 reps! Tim got Rank 1 in the GPP category with 103 reps in the Long Cycle! Not a small feat for such a short training cycle. Well done! Also big thanks to Al Senior, Tim, Sofia, Leisa, Oren and Alison for your help with organizing such a great event!

Weekend Event Schedule Reminder: This Saturday we are hosting the IKFF New York Open Kettlebell Sport Championships. The Kettlebell Sport competition part of this event is taking place on the rooftop of Hunters Point Plaza building at 47-40 21st Street from 9am until 12pm, followed by a lunch break and a CrossFit Challenge with final awards ceremony. We are looking for a few more volunteers to help run this event. If you have time and are willing to help, and want to get a cool Kettlebell Club t-shirt :-), please let me know.
On Sunday there will be no Open Floor classes. We are hosting IKSFA USA Elite Kettlebell Power Juggling & H2H Workshop at the box and it's not too late to sign up for it! This workshop is led by the professional juggler Oksana Nikifor (who is flying over specifically for this event from Russia) and very well known in CrossFit community Kettlebell expert Jeff Martone.
