Stephanie put in a breath taking performance throughout and smashed through so many personal barriers, succeeding in achieving personal bests throughout the competition!
Round 1 was the '5km-row-for-time' with a time cap of 20 mins.
This put the fittest of athletes through their paces and was an extremely tough 1st round. However the girls came and conquered! Although not one of her easiest events (being small person means rowing isn't easy for her), we cheered her through it and she reached the end with around 200m to go which was amazing!
Round 2 was to build to a 1 rep max on an over head squat. Steph hit a PB with an impressive 85kg!
Round 3 was an extremely tough workout, very heavy on the shoulders! 5 minutes 'AMRAP' (as many rounds as possible) of 10 ring muscle ups and 5 x 30kg over head press...!
Stephanie pushed through all the workouts, achieving an impressive 95kg clean on the clean ladder and expressed her joy in nailing the lift!
After a full 2 days, she finished in 23rd place (which across the whole of Europe is sooooooooo impressive) and we could not be more proud of her! Her awesome display of strength, agility and sheer determination were so amazing and inspiring!
Kitted with an array of Tikiboo outfits to complete her journey made us buzz with pride.
We look forward to seeing more of what 2016 brings and watching Stephanie on her journey!
