“I compete occasionally throughout the year, but I’m definitely looking to compete much more over the next year” said Alistair.

“I’m delighted at the result; it’s a huge personal achievement and one I hope to build upon.

“I trained hard in the run up to the event, particularly focusing on periodisation strength and gymnastics cycles with a build-up of competition style workouts.”

CrossFit Pendle owner Mike Rawson and members of the gym were thrilled with Alistair’s achievement. Mike said: “Alistair competed at a very high level so to be placed fourth is a huge achievement and we’re all very proud of him. He works hard on a daily basis and is passionate about what he does.

“I’m confident his performance will only go from strength to strength.”
