Katie D. is focused as she loads up for her jerk. Thanks Katie for being our Festivus Games photographer.
Thanks to all of you who helped make our Festivus Games so amazing! It was you, our volunteers, who made the competition run smoothly and so much fun! We had 40 competitors from over 6 gyms who dug deep and conquered 4 tough workouts. The lucky top 5 earned more CrossFit and took on a brutal Kettlebell Swing/Wall Ball couplet for the Finals Workout.
The competition was SO amazing and our athletes showed their True Spirit. Congratulations to our True Spirit Podium Winners!
Congrats to everyone else who competed. Christina competed in her first competition and finished 4th in the novice division! This was also Ashley's first competition and she inspired the rest of her intermediate competitors as they cheered her on as she strung together kipping pull-ups! Congrats Heather U. who had the most beautiful, perfect push-ups of any competitor. Congrats Brian who volunteered last year as a judge last year and was inspired to compete this year! Finally, Congrats Coach James who suffered through the final workout and then tapped the keg for the rest of us.
We will host the Festivus Games again next April. I sure hope you join us!
