Masters of Sport, Jessica DiBiase (using 20kg = 44 lbs.) and Sara Nelson-Montoya (using 18kg = 39.6 lbs.) along with Lockout Crew’s Melissa Metcalf (using 16 kg = 35.2 lbs.) perform a beautiful ten minute kettlebell jerk set. All weighing under 60kg, these powerful ladies are proving that you cannot judge strength by its size; and their celebration of femininity within KB Sport is just another example of girl power in all forms!

Sam takes the snatch by storm, going the full 10 minutes to earn 162 repsÂ – in her first competition!
And finally, our hero, Karen stole the hearts of everyone by becoming the WKC’s 1st National Champion in the Senior Women Division.
Special Congrats to Emily Friedel for earning MS in Biathlon, Cate Imes for producing yet another Master of Sport in Emily Friedel; C-Duff and the Lockout Team for their amazing performances, and Team Croatia for displaying some wicked sick lifting this weekend.
Thank you WKC for throwing another great event.
Sarah MAC and the Saturday Kettlebell Sport Team are ready to handle any situation at any time.
The ladies are back from the World Kettlebell Club’s Ukrainian Sport Camp hosted at the historic training facility of 15x World Champion, Fedor Fuglev (who is 48 years of age by the way, but wait till you see the stuff he does).Â With more than 24 hours of travel time and 4 flights to get home, they are a bit jet lagged, but full of immense gratitude for their incredible experience.Â Maya and Surya promise to chronicle their most amazing excursion to date on the ICKB site very soon.Â Until then, here is a video of their once in a lifetime adventure to the Black Sea.
Team Ice Chamber made another impressive showing this weekend at the World LongCycle Championship in NYC!
Mel won the Silver (earned CMS rank) while Jen took the Gold in their respective weight classes of the 16kg division.
Sara and Surya take it to the next level by winning two Golds in the 24kg division!
Finally, Maya took gold in her weight class and simultaneously became (along with Lorna Kleidman) one of the last women to earn a MS rank in the 20kg Long Cycle (current WKC rankings). Â With this accomplishment, the ICKB Girls became the only team in the country to be comprised 100% of Masters of Sport!
Congratulations to ICKB Girls Sara & Surya for earning their Master of Sport rank in the Long Cycle this past weekend at the 2010 Arnold Sports Festival!
“Leading up to the moment, Sara was nervous and nauseous, but she fired off her set with classic well-trained speed strength and I didnâ€™t see an ounce of doubt after rep one….”
We are constantly inspired by women breaking barriers!Â Take a look at the world’s best, Russian Champion Oksana Nikifor in action…
