York get the throwdown at Tullamore

Another great day competing, this time down @midlandsthrowdown in @crossfit_tullamore

York Performance had 3 coaches competing in 3 different categories.

Paul Walls (scaled masters).
From the start of the competition, Paul set the pace for the other competitors with a new 1RM in his clean at 107.5kg. He hit 51 calories on the assault bike in 2 minutes, coming in joint first place after Event 1. Everyone who trains at York Performance and trains with Paul knows his fitness is on another level and his mentality is second to none…that’s what won him the competition!
While other competitors took breaks, Paul never let up! As a gym, we are so chuffed for Paul as he trains relentlessly while being a husband, daddy of 2 and a partner in his own business (in a very physical job). How he stays consistent in his training is remarkable. Well deserved win for a great fella. Well done Paul!

Sarah McErlain (Ladies Intermediate).
Sarah had, without a doubt, the toughest job of the day. The ladies division was the toughest I have ever seen in intermediate level. Sarah started well with a new 1RM in the clean @ 72.5kg and 44 cals in 2 minutes on the assault bike.
๐Ÿ‘‰The standard was that good one girl hit an impressive 92.5kg other clean.๐Ÿ‘ˆ

We all know Sarah is fit, strong and dedicated to working hard both in and outside the gym, but when anyone is competing and sees that standard put in front of you it’s so easy to crumble and admit defeat. However, Sarah showed mental strength and determination on the competition floor which made the difference and put Sarah into a well drserved 3rd place.
Well done Sarah, impressive from start to finish as always!

Jonny York (Intermediate master)
I won by 1 point
(by the skin of my teeth lol)

Massive thanks to the organisers at the @midlandsthrowdown throwdown, great competition, great judges, great pizza, really well run competition and the workouts were brutal. Best run competition we have attended yet. Well done @crossfit_tullamore
