Wheeling Park teen places in international fitness competition

Ohio County

WHEELING W.Va. (WTRF) Congratulations is in order for Wheeling Park junior Nadia Szymialis who recently returned from Sweden where she placed second in the Functional Fitness Federation Worlds.

Szymialis has been doing cross fit for almost three years and says it’s her consistency and hard work is what got her to this point. At the competition she scored in several categories and events. She says she was a little nervous before she competed but ultimately let her body take over during each event.

So, at this one I had to do a strength event, a gymnastics event, an endurance event, and a mixture. 

I was kind of surprised because I didn’t check the results before because I kind of wanted it to be a surprise. Ultimately, I’d like to make the CrossFit games next year.

Szymialis says it was an honor to compete and represent the U.S and that she is looking forward to competing at the next level.
