Where to begin. There are so many people it’s hard to single you all out. I’m going to have to keep this short and sweet or else it will be just like you are talking to me and nobody wants that!
First of all, as a group, you all made me so very proud. On and off the training floor you represented our community with great qualities. On the floor you each moved very well and worked your butt off. Off the floor you were friendly, fun, and sportsmanlike. There were several instances where I received compliments about the group. Thanks for always being awesome human beings.
Both Teams – In a competition where we balanced our teams out for fun and to get the most people involved we placed both teams in the top 13. That’s amazing. You both improved on your qualifying workouts and you both kicked ass!
Team – CFNV Blue (Pete, Phyllis, Jian, Natassja)
Overall a great performance highlighted by smiles all weekend. Hard work and teamwork were the strong points as each of you excelled in your own areas and contributed. Jian, besides being late for the first time in his life, was strong with his bar work and was a great example of how to lead by example. Pete was used to running on “phyllis time” and was unflappable. Always teaching, Pete played a strong role in strategy and worked like an ox reliving his football days! Phyllis, also used to being late, used her lateness to do 10 unbroken thrusters at 95lbs on Sunday morning which has got to be some kind of PR. Tash, when not looking like she was going to vomit from her team being late, was awesome. She attacked everything like it was her last workout of her life. You guys were awesome to watch once you arrived. 😉
Team – CFNV Black (Tom, Adam, Roe, Alex)
Overall a super weekend with some impressive performances. You guys had two workouts that stood out. 50 bar muscles ups non-stop and the final workout of the weekend where you gave the crowd of travelling supporters exactly what they needed. Tom, you were a pillar of strength for the team through the weekend. Adam, always willing to push push push and move through workouts with speed and determination. Roe, super strong and always wayyyy better than you think! Alex, amazing debut for CFNV. It was a pleasure to have you be a part of things and I think i speak for everyone when I say we are all impressed with your gymnastics on the bar. Fun to watch you guys work. Nice job.
Bull – Ridiculous. 60 years young showing the kids how it’s done.
Ryan – Most improved hands down. Better each day, keep up the good work.
Sam – I love watching you compete. You are awesome.
Filip – each competition you grow and that was evident last weekend. Getting stronger each time.
Dick – You’re a dick. Basically 3 months off and you made it look easy. Well, everything except the breathing part.
Sally – Amazing. Always smiling. Always working hard. Inspiring.
Mandy – Absolutely a Diva. The highest ranked most beautiful athlete.
