Firstaid4sport Ambassador – Reece Mitchell
We are proud to announce that Firstaid4sport will be supporting Reece Mitchell over the coming CrossFit season.
With CrossFit Open starting on Friday 22nd February and running for 5 weeks with a WOD released every Thursday at midnight, Open to anyone aged 14 or over, the Open whittles down to the top 17 from each region. Then the top 5 qualifying at the regionals competition moves on to The Reebok CrossFit Games.
Firstaid4sport Director Michael Davison says “With CrossFit becoming the fastest growing fitness sport not just in the UK but the world, we are really excited to be supporting Reece as he looks to qualify for The CrossFit Games 2018. To come 3rd in his age division last year was an incredible achievement and we look forward to sharing in his CrossFit journey the year.
