This past weekend we hosted the 2015 Icebreaker Challenge presented by Triple Crown Events and Blonyx! The weekend was a success. Spectators were entertained, Athletes were tested, and Volunteers had a good time. I can’t thank you all enough for your support. Whether you volunteered or just understood why the gym was closed I appreciate your help!! We would also like to thank all sponsors for their contributions – Blonyx, Infinit Nutrition, Great Bear Bites, Q-Energy, Savage Army, Pivotal Health, Health Sciences Lab, Kim Kirk Massage Therapy, Bellevue Natural Health, DJ Rhyno, Caragh Camera Photography, Compete Online Scoring, and Caveman Grocer. Next year the Icebreaker will not be held at CFNV as we have outgrown the space. This is really cool, but, also makes me sad as I am very proud of CFNV and our Community and I look forward to inviting everyone over once a year.
Our athletes were awesome and made us proud. Terry “Bull” Peters was up to his usual routine of kicking peoples butts who are half his age! He was one of the first people to make it through the wall balls and into the double unders on the final work. Impressive. Matt “Trophy” Ciolfi was consistent and ever present amongst the top ten athletes. Matt is always learning and this weekend will help Matt take further strides as an athlete. He doesn’t even resemble the person who walked in our gym a year ago. Big things in the future from this dude. On the ladies side, Roe won a Gold Medal in her weight class, Tash a silver, and Mandy a bronze. Yup, that’s right, all three ladies hit the podium in their respective weight classes. Lastly, AJ, one of our original members who was transplanted in Victoria for school and now Seattle won gold in her weight class and made the Final Event for the weekend placing in the top 6! Overall, a fantastic weekend with our athletes moving well and showing everyone we are a force.
Lastly, Chris, Jesse, and myself are very proud of our events and very thankful for all the support. Thanks again and see you soon at our next event!!
