In the gruelling world of CrossFit, 5 times Commonwealth Games gold medallist and World Masters record holder David Morgan is a world record breaker. Competing in a sport where the average age is 28, David managed to shave 27 seconds off the record in a seemingly effortless but punishing circuit of weights and gymnastics. He added yet another world breaking record to his list of achievements.

Originally developed in California in 1995 as an all round training and fitness programme for the police, CrossFit’s popularity is, according to Canada’s Business News Network, "one of the fastest growing fitness movements on the planet".

The idea is to have a high level of fitness across the board, hence the name "CROSSFIT", it combines weightlifting, gymnastic moves and general weight training into circuits that are usually done with specified weights in a specific time.
