And the bell went flying...
KOR had a strong team showing of 17 athletes (our team is growing fast!). I'm proud to say my students demonstrated good technical proficiency with the lighter bells (12-16kg), which is something I impress upon them is NECESSARY before moving up to the heavier weights.

As the title of this post suggests, the 24kg green monster bell went flying during my set, around 40-something repetitions on my right hand! I pushed my grip too far, which would have been a disaster at a single hand switch competition... lucky for me, this was Bolt so I picked the bell back up and kept going.
(Skip to minute 3 for the exciting part...)
All in all, I'm pleased with my own sets and super impressed by my athletes' performances. Coaching Kettlebell Sport has been more rewarding than I could have imagined!
Shoutout to Erik, Dan, Kristen, Eric, Mike, and everyone who contributed to putting together this event.
Thanks to everyone who came out - look forward to another meet at KOR Strength and Conditioning in the not too distant future!
