Pinnacle Foundation: Pinnacle LIFT, 21st October 2017
The Pinnacle Foundation team in conjunction with the teams at Pinnacle Performance & Pinnacle BLACK once again led a deadlift challenge in the latest drive to benefit our Athlete Development Program (ADP). The challenge was held at Pinnacle BLACK on Saturday 21st October 2017, and featured a total of 17 athletes and coaches, raising over HK$6,200.
This event was different to the previous Pinnacle LIFT; whereas previous ones were team events, this was an individual event where each athlete had to choose one weight for their bar that stayed the same throughout their hour of lifting. Athletes therefore had to plan their lifting strategy accordingly, as fatigue quickly became a factor in the individual event.
A huge congratulations to all the athletes involved, who spent months training leading up to the event and absolutely smashed personal bests, expectations, and goals!
The prizes for the winners included a free month of training at Pinnacle Performance, valued at HK$2,995, in addition to bragging rights until our next event.
With The Pinnacle Foundation sponsoring 11 athletes this year compared to 5 the year before, sponsorship is even more crucial this year. Please get in touch with [email protected] to find out how to sponsor one of our youth athletes!
