Congratulations to our very own Gary, Oliver, Elaine & Shane who flew the flag for us at Westmeath's Fittest Company event recently. A kayak, obstacle course, bog run and hang tough challenge awaited the guys where they came home 1st their heat and made it right through to the final. The elements were tough but a superb day was had by all including team mentor Sharon Scally who drove the guys on all day. Well done to organisers Maurice Looby Fitness, all the competitors and everyone who played a part in organising a brilliant event.
