Northwest Throwdown, Derry, 2017

Lucinda took the first place in her category at the Northwest Throwdown tournament last weekend in Derry.

The tournament attracts some of the top CrossFit athletes in Ireland, who showcase their skills over a gruelling one-day event and features Olympic lifting movements and gymnastic skills.

Lucinda, a Secondary School Teacher, who trains out of CrossFit Letterkenny in Pinehill Business Park, manages her busy lifestyle by fitting her training in, before work, under the watchful eye of Owner and Headcoach, Neil Barret. She follows an exercise programme which combines cardio with resistance and weight training – Barrett says “she’s clearly reaping the benefits”.

With the latest accomplishment under her belt, Gorman is prepping for the Reebok Crossfit Games Open on Feb 23rd, which brings together the ‘fittest on earth’.

She hopes to ultimately place top female in Ireland in her Division and qualify to Regional, which will be held in June in Madrid, Spain.
