The AKA Pan American Open Championship 2014. Kettlebell sport lifting has resurfaced at the Arnold Sports Weekend in Columbus OH.
March 1, 2014
This weekend was a blur. From traveling up to Columbus nearly two hours late listening to Baroness ,
to ordering too much sushi (as if thats possible) and a bit of sake….
to falling asleep faster than I ever thought possible.
I think I had too much caffeine on the way up for that to happen. But it did and I woke up ready to face a large Kettlebell competition that i really didn’t feel i had a good chance to prepare for.
But that didn’t matter. You see I was there to share the worry, sweat, excitement and happiness with 8 other members of Swing.
Many of whom hadn’t competed in kettlebell sport before, and a couple I heard had not competed in ANYTHING physical in their life.
If they were going to push themselves them dammit so was I. I was going to bring the last three weeks of a cough and congestion with me to that platform.
