Results

As if the Warrior Race was not enough of a work out, Greg also competed in the Cactic Fitness Black-opps challenge on Saturday and set a leading time of 7:02 for the challenge (10 muscle-ups, 20 weighted squats, 20 weighted pull-ups, 20 weighted knee raises, 20 ring dips and 30 decline push-ups). While he was racing on Sunday someone had broken his time, so after a short rest he went back and managed to finish in 5:43 securing the top spot. His training partner Jaco Lourens won the Blue Challenge so their training is paying off.11891419_902172593187077_8269760801365835541_o
