Sam Keogh Trophy: Merseyside's Strongest Comp 2021 (Sat 18th Dec 2021)
Sam Keogh Trophy Comp
My good friend Sam Keogh passed away last year. He was one of the best people I ever knew. We will run a yearly comp in his name & honour and raise money for kids in the local area to kit themselves out for the gym. This was something we talked about when we used to lift together. A life taken too soon but with a lasting legacy. I would appreciate you coming along and taking part. Thanks, Vin
We are running this comp slightly differently. We have a medley of events which can give you an overall score. It is your ability to either lift heavy or for reps which will determine your placing.
You simply look at the implements in front of you & simply go for it.
This means everyone can compete to the best of their ability and take advantage of that. It also means you get to use some tactics to try and out-think your opponents. It also means everyone has a fair opportunity to stack up points depending on their strength or conditioning level.
You might even decide to go for a PB lift before you rep out something easier! The choices are endless. But choose wisely!
At the end of the scoring, the results will be split between men & women. Every athlete will get a prize from Cerberus for taking part which is now in stock.
Prizes for the top 3 in each male and female category will be also be added on top.
T shirts are being made for all competitors & extra ones can be purchased on the day.
