We'll try to keep this short. First of all, congrats to all the awesome athletes who left it on the floor today! Thank you to all volunteers and judges who did such a great job. Jake Howard did a spectacular job as head judge and Trey was the "mathman" with the scorekeeping.

The weather made us prove we're CrossFitters! The levee WOD was in question as lightning, wind, and rain made it a sloppy mess. The teams didn't seem to mind! Our new sandbags (given away as rewards) were quickly turned into sopping bags covered in mud and the rain prevented any video coverage. "The Posers" from CrossFit Valley Park simply crushed the Levee WOD. The excitement and drama had just begun.  The day moved on with some intimidating individual WOD's and 2 more grueling team events. Again, "The Posers" took the top spot with Kirkwood getting 2nd in the workout. The individuals showed us some serious strength as Mark Platsnik ripped through "The Reckoning" in 4:34. Jake Howard and David Corthwaite made it a race finishing at 5:00 and 5:01. Jake simply left the field behind as he saved his fury for the 2nd workout, "The Grudge." Mike Walerius and Brian Shu were right behind. A big shout out to the only females in the individual competition. Christina Thacker and Natalie Sayers really brought it with amazing performances. Christina managed all 4 kettlebell lifts, with time expiring to only count the first 3. The girls placed with only 8 seconds seperating them.

Valley Park expresses their pride and thanks to all St. Louis Affiliates who brought such great athletes to compete. It was simply incredible to see so many awesome performances. As usual, some of the struggles and grit really made the highlight reel. People of all different ages and abilities showed one of the greatest inspirations…..HEART! Despite a few mishaps in procedures, the day went smoothly. Thank you all!
