Jay Jay Deyzel - Warrior6 Race Report
Warrior #7 (Race Report)
I passed Egor and pulled a gap on the guys behind me going through the first few obstacles and with around 4 obstacles to go before the finish line I saw that if I can keep my pace up I might catch some of the guys on the famous #Breakingpoint. I pushed hard and managed to get there without any problems. When I got to #Breakingpoint I saw that Louis was sitting on the rest point halfway through the obstacle and other 2 athletes were at the start of the obstacle. I knew that I shouldn’t mess this up and I had to make sure that I get through it the first time without falling. I grabbed the first swinging ball, believed in myself and all that went through my mind was go go go !! I went through the #Hangingballs "haha", #Unchainedmonkey and #Cliffhanger without any problem passing Louis just before #cliffhanger. I got onto the net and in the corner of my eye saw that Louis just completed the #cliffhanger and that we are going to be on the net at the same time, I was on the lowest point of the net and the bell felt like it was miles away !! My hands got tired and my fore arms started pumping but the cheer from the crowd and my coach JP from WarriorFit that kept on saying don’t let go, don’t let go really helped me through as I was literally hanging on 2 fingers when I started to build up a swing to kick the bell. Me and Louis got through #Breakingpoint at exactly the same time. He got into #Mudmonster before me but I managed to pass him with my #Salomons giving me all the grip i needed and pull a bit of a gap, after #Mudmonsterr I ran to the #TowerofRage where I jumped off into the muddy water and made my way across the finish line getting a big welcome from Max Cluer (The funny guy with the mic ) who always keeps the spectators entertained and informed on exactly what’s happening at the event and on the course !! Welldone to my Jeep teammate Thomas van Tonder OCR on taking the number 1 spot on the podium and driving away with that new #JeepRenegade, Claude Eksteen for taking 2nd and Greg Avierenos with 3rd #Allwaysontopform !!
