Our first of many St. Louis Team Competitions is complete and I am spent! Again, the emotional charge of these events is so incredible. We had a huge turnout and want to thank all the members, families, and friends for coming out to support us. To all the athletes that competed…you should be very proud of your accomplishments. There were several people very new to CrossFit who came out and tangled with the veterans. That takes courage and you all did great. Welcome to "The Sport of Fitness."
Our day started off with a bang as athletes engaged in a "Fight Gone Bad" style workout that included some exhausting movements. No one scaled this event! After the bodies hit the floor and the music faded, CrossFit Valley Park was in 1st place by just 1 repetition! CrossFit St. Charles and CrossFit TNT held closely to 2nd and 3rd place. The 2nd event was a 750 meter row that left some athletes cramped and down for the count. We were concerned they may not be able to continue. Corey Lewis pulled an astounding 2:13 and he was feeling the aftermath. After the 2nd event CrossFIt Valley Park was tied for the lead with CrossFit St. Charles with 10 points. CrossFit TNT was close behind with 8. It was anyone's game going into the 3rd workout. CrossFit St. Charles set the bar in our "Team Helen" workout and they just couldn't be caught. The close battle ended up with CrossFit St. Charles in 1st, CrossFit Valley Park in 2nd, and CrossFit TNT in 3rd. With each affiliate having 2 teams, there were 6 places so it was so cool that each one got a team on the podium!!! Congrats to Kim Wilkes and her team. All for now….I'm whooped!
