After quite a lay off from our USKA Charity Iron Man events with the last one being in December last year we picked them up once again today at the USKA Fight Factory with 44 competitors taking part.
The Iron man is an all inclusive competition consisting of 6 events accumulating points with an overall score collated at the end to find the highest scorer in each age group.
Our exercises for today were... Squat Thrusts, Step Ups, Crab Claps, Bag Kicks, 1 Meter jumps and Press Up Step Ups.
It was a great competition with everyone working really hard to earn their trophies and medals.
Congratulations to everyone who competed and a shout out to our highest scorers in their respective age classes...
3 - 6 Years - Noah Zidan (256 Points)
7 - 8 Years - Iylaah Hassan (308 Points)
9 - 11 Years - Sophia Sharif (308 Points)
12 - 13 Years - Kaifah Imran (460 Points)
14 - 15 Years - Aadam Ali (476 Points)
