Fun in the sun at weekend Water Olympics


On Saturday June 7th, the San Pedro Strength and Swim Club hosted its first ever Sun and Sand Water Olympics. The fun game-filled day kicked off around 12PM and saw three teams challenging each other.

The teams were Buck Furpees, Shark Bait, and ElectroShocks, and while the games did not include a burpee challenge, team “Buck Furpees” sure didn’t forget to remind everyone how they felt about them with their slogan printed on their shirts “I love burpees!- said no one ever.”
