Joshua Malone, winner of adult freestyle said
“I always love coming to this event. The gym and setup are always great but it’s the people and community that really makes it”-Josh Malone
Lucas typed out a little paragraph talking about his experience at the event. Here’s what he had to say:
I would like to start off by thanking the local community for helping us out! Everyone was hospitable and welcoming.
During the competition
I was a little nervous. After
warminingup and prepping my runs I started to gain more confidence. When it comes to competition you have to mentally and physically prepare yourself for everything! You never want to pull out anything you haven’t trained and/or landed solidly multiple times!
After Skills and
Speedwe walked into another building where we were going to have the freestyle competition. Freestyle went amazing! So many athletes with different skill sets and back groundsdisplayed their creative side on the course.
During the awards ceremony for Freestyle
I was excited to hear my name called for second place! Before hand I have never gotten to the podium in freestyle!I think I got even more excited when Josh got first!The only two FiM Athletes to compete in Freestyle made the podium in the top two spots!
You can watch the boys freestyle runs on their Instagrams!
