Another CrossFit Open has come and gone. 2018 proved to be a great test of our fitness, showing us our strengths and of course pointing out some of our weaknesses. We had a ton of FIRSTS during the 5 weeks, and hope to keep that momentum going throughout the year!
Our final results for week five ended with a bang (not to mention a gasser of a workout). This week's Spirit award goes to John Bowmeister and his team for the Hot Tub Time Machine and kicking it old school with the Rhonda's Karaoke machine. Our second spirit award goes to Tamara P. Tamara's Karaoke was spot on but her wet suit really took the cake. Tamara could always be spotted in a great outfit each week and her fun spirit was never gone unnoticed. Congrats. Our MVP awards this week went to Bryn & Michelle J who both got their First C2B pull ups. Well done ladies. The top leaderboard results will be posted to the FB page.
With the Open now finished we wanted to showcase some of the accomplishments that resulted. As most of you know being ranked in the top 50 is a pretty big deal. So we wanted to give a big shout out to all our athletes who landed on their divisions first page in Canada East. In the teens division, Tyler A is 34th and Nicole H is 49th. Allen L and Pete F both placed in the top 20 sealing an 11th & 15th place overall. Kathleen C made front page with a 41st placing. Catherine M came out every night and completed her workouts RX and now places 47th in her category. And last, but certainly not least, a big shout out to Paige Savery who not only placed 3rd in Canada East for her division, but also secured a spot for the Masters Online Qualifier placing 140th WORLDWIDE. So awesome!!!!! Everyone really did so well and we are proud of all your accomplishments. We hope you are too.
So without further ado...we would like to congratulate TEAM "Mighty Greengo's" on their rise to the championship for the 2018 Crux Intramural Banner. It was a tight race in the end, but they managed to hold their lead throughout the 5 weeks. Enjoy the WIN! We will be revealing the official banner ceremonies at the MD comp this April so make sure everyone comes out for the picture.
