Under 13 sprinter/high jumper, Benedict Davies, showed us just what he was made of recently, when he took part in the English Kettlebell Association qualifiers for Team England! DHAC Coach, Steve, spotted Benedict’s potential during his kettlebell training sessions and competitions, and as a result of his sheer talent, Benedict was invited to come along to the Harrogate based event and compete along with Steve.
This time he went more for the experience than to qualify, but he did so well and had such a great time, that next year he’s going again with the aim of qualifying for the England team!
There were three types of lift Benedict had to do: 10 minutes ‘Jerk’, 10 minutes ‘snatch’ and 10 minutes ‘long cycle.’ All soundsvery strenuous!
…..and if your wondering how Steve got on, well yes, he qualified! So our DHAC Coach will travel to Paris to compete as part of the England team later in the year. Next year, he may have a certain Benedict Davies travelling with him! Well done to both.
