It’s been an amazing weekend in Las Vegas with the ICKB Team! For the first time in history, Kettlebell Sport was hosted at the Mr. Olympia convention. For those of you unfamiliar with Mr. Olympia, it’s the international bodybuilding competition and physical culture convention that made Arnold Schwarzenegger famous. This weekend marked the 50th anniversary of the marquee event and had an estimated attendance record of 50,000 people!
Our entire team performed incredibly well, under the pressure and sensory overload from thousands of spectators watching, blasting music, and not to mention the non-stop neon lights and signs!
