CFVP is returning to Chicago for the 2012 CrossFit Games Regional competition. The field has been narrowed. 30 teams from the North Central Region will battle it out for only 3 spots to compete in the 2012 CrossFit Games. CrossFit Valley Park placed in a tie for 18th place ovearll. First of all, we want to congratulate team CFVP. We had 36 people signed up for the Open Qualifier. Everyone gave it their all and found plenty of PR's. Our top 3 male and female rankings will have the opportunity to compete. We will keep you posted and announce our team roster. We also want to mention that Margaret Junker and Melissa Hurley both qualified as individual competitors. Margaret finished 33rd in the region. Melissa finished 36th. We couldn't be more proud.
We would also like to take this opportunity to recognize some of our close friends who qualified for individual competition. These athletes put on a show for 5 weeks. David Corthwaite finished 14th in the North Central region. Josh Nimmo placed 20th. Cory Buerck placed 24th. Jake Howard placed 35th. Kelley Jackson placed 2nd in the region. Rochelle Thayer placed 58th. It looks like CrossFit Gambit, CrossFit St. Louis, CrossFit Metro East, CrossFit Xtra Mile, and CrossFit TNT will all be represented in Chicago. Best of luck everyone.
