Fireworks Were A Blazin!

You would think Rubin (Jose) was from America and not New Zealand…as he provided some inspiring fireworks for the crowd on July 4th weekend in Pittsburgh at the Men’s 10K pro event. Well it’s now been 7 weeks with us here at Strive and Rubin is on quite a tear with a 13 match win streak and back to back titles in as many weeks. Rubin is growing both his game and mind (most importantly), and we are excited about what 2017 will look like this time next year for Rubin.


4 More Matches To Go To Get In The US OPEN

Rubin has only been back training with Coach Heath and Lindsay for 6 weeks and is making rapid growth in his game and ranking. Last week Rubin won 6 matches to take the 128 Draw Title and earns a birth into New Haven. If he wins New Haven he will be granted a Wild Card into the US Open Qualies. Send some good vibes his way. He is working his tail off and quite a determined young KIWI!
