Saturday – Individual competition.
There were a few lovely ladies competing for us. Quite a diverse crew. Some real veterans and some first timers who all made impressions on me. First, Mandy aka “Diva” and Romayne aka “Roe” who fittingly tied and hit the podium in 3rd place overall! Congrats girls! Roe excelled in WOD 1 as she through 160lbs over head to secure a 1st place in the wod and tied for 1st in WOD 3. Mandy was her usual self cruising along through most wods and impressively snagged a 1st place in WOD 2! Both girls made the final where they had to do Bar Muscle Ups and Wall Walks. They made their way over to Coach Yoda and learned how to do a Bar Muscle Up in 5min! LOL Each crushed the final wod doing well over 10 BMU each!
Three other ladies took on the day. Two, their very first competition ever, Kat “Klutz” Percy and Sam “Gator” Cox! Last but not least Kristin “KD” Auger who has some team experience but has never competed as an individual. These ladies all showed tremendous courage and I am so proud of them for taking on the challenge. Each of them worked super hard all day and deserve to walk around with their heads held high!
The boys. Corey and Jian tackled the day and what a day it was. Corey “Popeye” Auger took 4th place overall and I am pretty sure he was #2 in the final wod of the day. Jian “Flip” Pablico was 10th overall and took a 3rd in WOD 1b. Both were very consistent across the board and looked very strong.
Tomorrow, Sunday, is the team day and there will be several of us competing. If tomorrow is half as good as today it will be just awesome! Come on out and check everyone out. 1431 Clyde Ave in West Van @ CrossFit BC.
