With the Open starting this week, it’s only fitting we sit back and reflect on this past weekend’s achievement by our 2 rockstar coaches who have been killing it as of late. And it only feels like days ago when they can back from the okanagan valley throwdown all smiles. Before I get into results, it’s important to note that neither of them succeed without the other as a training partner. And, it’s not just the 2 of them. They, just like you in your classes. Rise to the top together, push each other together, and achieve more because of each other. So it’s no wonder they were all smiles this past weekend. Congrats you two! You represent with nothing but class.
As for results, Austin finished first in his weight class (77kg) with a 91kg snatch and 130kg c&j totalling 221kg. And Marley overall finish hasn’t been posted yet (sorry I’ll update as soon as it’s available), she finished with a 58kg snatch and 75kg c&j for a 133kg total in the 69kg class. Both should be really proud of their lifts in their first ever sanctioned weightlifting meet. I hope it’s not their last!!!!
And then there’s the OPEN, and it starts this week. Every Thursday for 5 weeks, CrossFit announces the workout around 5pm. Athletes have until Monday to submit their score. Athletes all over the world compete against each other, themselves, their friends for nothing more than a good time. We have set aside designated times to these mystery WODs on Saturday. You can see them clearly marked on the schedule. If want to compete, simply register at games.CrossFit.com, and don’t forget to add CrossFit Whistler as your home affiliate. I promise it will be fun! Exciting! and maybe a bit scary, but it’s all in good fun. Each week, the WODs will have a scaling option. Which, given the level of athletes competing at CrossFit, I imagine the scaling option will be the go to route for most on some of the WODs. Good thing is you don’t have to enter a scaled or Rx division. You decide each week depending on the workout. Cost is $20 USD. Already we have 23 registered, but I have a feeling that will grow!!! Don’t miss out, and enjoy the fun. If Saturday’s don’t jive with your schedule, we will do our best as coaches to allow for open gym times on Friday to be used to get the open WOD judged as best we can.
Enjoy the week, and get ready for the OPEN Season!
