Last Friday, in conjunction with International Olympic Day, Premier Physical and CXC Skiing, held Olympic Day in Minocqua, Wisconsin. The event was held for kids of all ages to get together and get exposure to a wide variety of sports and activities. There were over 100 kids from Northwestern Wisconsin who came out to join in the fun.
Steve Merlin, strength consultant to the CXC Team, taught the kids barefoot running drills to help teach them to run more efficiently.
One of the highlights for the kids were Merlin’s “Critter Crawls.” I’m not exactly sure which critter they’re demonstrating here, but I’m pretty sure it’s some sort of crab walk.
Local news crews were even on hand to document the day. Here, Jim Mullen shows off his new World Class training facility at Premier Physical.
Of course, what would Olympic Day be without real Olympians? Igor Badamshin (‘94) goes old school, Russian Style, on Caitlin Compton (‘10) representing the home team – US of A.
