Ladies and gentlemen, the 2017 Fall TSC results are in!
First, thank you to everyone who participated in this unique worldwide event. With just over 1,100 competitors from around the globe, once again our women’s novice division was our biggest division.
It was great to see so many new faces and names embracing strength as a mother quality. But most importantly, it was great to see people face their fears head on.
As someone who has been a competitor in some form for many years, I know it’s not easy to stand in front of a crowd, be the highlight of the room even for a brief moment, and perform. Fear of failure can be our greatest adversary—if we let it be.
I have the highest respect for people who step up and face their fears, no matter how big or how small the challenge. So, to everyone from the first-time and tenth-time competitors, I salute you.
As usual, there were many personal records in each event with 35 of them coming out of Omaha Elite Kettlebell alone. In addition, Team TNT Fitness Results represented in six of the nine divisions. But the coolest thing I saw was gyms—like Game Changers Health, Hardstyle KBJJ, Prevail Strength, and Kettlebell 360 to name a few—combining forces to compete under one roof as one team. There is strength in numbers!
With that said…
We Have a New King and Queen of the Men’s and Women’s Elite Divisions
Adam DeMarais taking over the throne should make for a great showdown in the spring when Derek Toshner returns to try to reclaim what has been his for many years.
We also have a new Queen of the Women’s Elite, Jackie Michaels. This will also make for a great showdown in the spring as Hyunjin Choi will seek to regain her crown with contenders Jessica McCutcheon-Schour and Debbie Hayes (tied for third this time around) not far behind.
