222. Matt Kempson on Tactical Games, Hyrox, Power Belly, and More!

Obstacle Running Adventures

Mike had the chance to talk to one of his top 2 favorite Kempson brothers (not picking sides on this one)! Matt Kempson has switched his athletic focus more towards an event called The Tactical Games and other than following his Instagram posts, it's not an event that I know much about.  He came on to talk about that event, Hyrox, his thoughts on Spartan Ultra Championship in Telluride, Leon's injury, Hildervat, Kempson Designs, and much more! There aren't many athletes in OCR (or OCR adjacent sports) that I don't like but it's always a pleasure talking to a Kempson! 0:00 - 2:14 - Intro 2:14 - 8:40 - Quick News 8:40 - 9:14 - Content Preface 9:14 - 1:25:21 - Matt Kempson Interview (watch it here) 1:25:21 - End - Outro _ News Stories: Deka Fit Award Recall Nevada Spartan Trifecta Week Cancelled No Spectators or Kid's Race at Monterey Spartan Leon Kofoed Injury and Update Bubbles the Clown is Dead Amelia Boone Racing in Montana Canadian Spartan Pro Team OCRmill 21,000 Feet Reached $5,000 Goal Meme of the Week Secret Link Related Episodes: 77.
