An update about George in 11JJ, our BCHS Man of Steel.
George has been competing in the 3 day Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) World Championships event.
After day one George was placed third in the UK, and fortieth in the world. The days race was a 3km course with 80 obstacles, all of which George completed on his first attempt.
Day two was even more gruelling; a 15km race over mud and 100 obstacles to complete. George was able to completed 97 obstacles on his first attempt. He was placed ninth in the UK and twenty-sixth in the world.
Day three was the team event, which offered a chance to work together and have some fun. With wreck backs, pulls and carries, George excelled on the technical section. It was noted that George’s performance this year showed huge improvement since last year in terms of technical ability, strength but also attitude and mental resilience.
The future is certainly looking bright for George in this sport and as ever, we are so proud of George’s determination and commitment to succeed.
