I got some pictures from the race.
This obstacle looked quite tricky first time I saw it. We where discussing if the runners should try get up to the top from the bottom on this soapy surface.
The balls had a weight of 80 kg for men and 50 for the ladies. Here you had to use some powerlifting techniques.
To me it looked like there where more hills in this year of the competition.
The last 100 meters before goal contained a 3 meters fence of wood plank, and then the opportunity to choose between 10000 volts or crawl.
This obstacle where the new one where it looked like most of the runners appreciated being able to rest down the hill.
Many had to fight hard with these balls.
A little technological study.
Firts you had to get a good grip below the ball. Important to get both hands in a good position. Then also get a wide position with your feets and bend your knees deep.
If you get a good grip and standing you just straighten up you legs and back.
You should now got the ball on the right level.
To get the ball in right place.
