Again I want to pass on congrats to all those guys that had a crack at the THROWDOWN last Saturday at SXF.
The efforts of the REX athletes was amazing and I was again inspired by the determination and efforts shown by all. Thanks also to the athletes that came to spectate. You guys give the competitors that extra edge and I know you wanted to be down there along side of them sweating away.... NEXT TIME......
Well done to those guys that made it through to the finals, Donna, Tuyen, Mike, Michael and G. All of you finished well within the top 10 and left your mark on the WA CrossFit community as well as represented REX admirably.
It can be said that the WODs were challenging and none more so than the final 5 WODS that made up the finals. For me still 'love' running and what can I say about pistols. Stoked that I got out around 5 rounds of them!!!!! I think G and I surprised ourselves with that WOD.
Tuyen, what can I say. All over the intermediate level even though she was a little unsure of competing at that level. Finished top 10 and I believe would have finished higher except for a chin bar that was a little out of reach.
Donna again finished in the 10 for her level. Inspirational effort on the row and last final WODS, but again the old chin bar got her. Both our girls are up and comers and showed their worth in a tough field.
The two Mike's competed at the beginner level and held their own throughout. Again up and comers and with their limited CrossFit experience did unbelievable. I am a firm believer that you need to show a bit of heart in CrossFit, as when you just don't have anything left, heart and determination get you through. This was shown by these two fellas and in fact by all REX athletes throughout the day.
G Banger, exploded onto the CrossFit scene with a top 5 showing. Left his mark on the WA communty and will be one to watch for future comps. Some big hitters competed on the day and G held his own throughout. Smashed the pistols and left them for dead on the run. Strong showing and much much more to come......
SO all in all a great day and all I can say is looking forward to the next one guys............
On the radar is the Xmas in July guys on the 9th July. Looking forward to catcging up with everyone.
Also retest for Jackie will be next week. Apology for the delay, had to put it off due to Trigger Point and other commitments.
