This past weekend CrossFit Squamish had a bunch of athletes (Mel, Slater, Karen, and Kathleen) competing in very different types of events around southern BC, and the results were the same at each event: PR’s all around.
* CF Weightlifting Meet (Snatch + Clean and Jerk, Semiahmoo)
Slater: 180.8+220.5= 401.3#
Mel L: 99.2+132.3= 231.5# (1st in division)
* Monster Erg National 2000m Indoor Rowing Championships (Victoria)
Kathleen: 7:19.0 (2nd place in Masters (1st in age category); the woman who beat her set a new Masters World Record… take a moment, and read that again)
* Biathlon (Whistler)
Karen: 1st woman (7th/51 overall)
I saw a t-shirt on someone Saturday at the Weightlifting event that said: “We train as a team, we win as a team”. Don’t hesitate to congratulate the athletes who competed this weekend, these people represent all of us and our community. They chose to compete and did an excellent job worthy of praise.
