The CrossFit Liftoff began last Thursday, Nov. 30. Since then, athletes have been completing the published workout in addition to their heaviest snatch and clean and jerk. There was no time cap on the lifts and athletes were allowed to make as many attempts as they wanted before the end date of Monday 4th December.

Congratulations to everyone who took part!

The leaderboard is yet to be finalised and some movement will happen. If I’ve missed anyone out, apologies. Let me know and I’ll edit…

As it currently stands, the UK has one worldwide winner and one runner-up!

Congratulations to some of our past interviewees from the UK and Europe – David Hippensteel won the Liftoff (60+) and Giulio Silvino won the Liftoff (45-49)

Not a Master, but a special mention goes to UK Teen sensation and past interviewee, Murtaza Nadeem. He came 1st worldwide in the Teens 16/17 category and 1st in the UK for Men! He did it with a 125KG snatch, a 145KG clean and jerk and 309 reps for the workout. Check out his highlights on Facebook.
