We were recently approached by Kris’s coach Alan Burnell from CrossFit UnLaois’d to help support Kristaps Simsons after he heard he was potentially going to Carson. We already sponsor a 15 year old, Donal McLaughlin, who is British schools and Irish youth olympic weightlifting champion so we were keen to get involved as we love to see young athletes achieve their potential and try & help out in any way possible.
Kris has been at CrossFit UnLaois’d since Summer of 2013. He has progressed at an alarming rate over the past 6 months. He did his first Open in 2014, giving him at good taste of what was to come in competitive CrossFit. Open 2015 see’s Kris as the Top 14-15 Athlete in Europe. He was then placed 9th Worldwide, giving him the coveted ticket to Carson.
Kris now has his sights on a podium finish this July. Training is going very well and his numbers are through the roof each week – so fingers crossed Kris can do the business in Carson next month..
Obviously it takes considerable money & resources to travel to America and for accommodation which is why we have lent a hand of support.
If you are keen to get involved you can buy your t-shirts through the website by clicking here or if you want to pay for a bulk order on one invoice email email@example.com or call on 00442890310110 to organise this…T-shirts will be in stock on Thursday the 11th of June and delivery should be next day.
If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch with one of the team & good luck to Kris, his family & coaches for the remaining preparation.
