Representing one’s country is one of the — if not the — greatest honors an individual can ever achieve. Last month, Andrew Board, a New Trier graduate, made the U.S. Kettlebell National Team and was set to compete at the World Championships Nov. 15-19 in Seoul, South Korea.

“It was an honor just to be among the bracket of 14 of the world’s best lifters in my weight category,” Bora said. “It was really electric, an atmosphere like I’ve never been in. There was a total of over 400 lifters from 25-26 different countries.”
