After a very tough weekend with 9 challenging workouts at The Crusader Team Series we ended on the podium in third place. We are super stoked with our final placing after climbing the leader board from 5th. We ended day one in 3rd but after two workouts on day two we had dropped to 5th so the last 3 events on day two was a dogfight to get back in podium contention.
There were plenty of highlights over the course of the weekend and all team members pulled their weight on various events to get the best result possible. It was Rach and Shez idea to sign up for the masters div. in this comp and and I was keen to join them. With Oscar from CrossFit East Tamaki answering our sos for a 4th team member we were set to take on Christchurch. Also a couple of special mentions to Oscar’s partner Sophie for making the trip down with him and being our designated media person for the weekend. And to Connie and Stan for keeping Rach calm before each event:)
64Fitness ran an awesome event. Everything went on time and all the volunteers were super helpful and friendly to us. I am sure I can speak for our whole team when I say we would recommend this competition to anyone who is keen to do a well organized team comp in the South Island. We have needed a comp like this and we are excited to hopefully see this comp grow over the next years.
Thank you to all who sent messages for encouragements and commented on our photos and videos. We read all of them, and it helped us compete hard, knowing people at home were following us.
