Disney Fit Challenge – Recap
This past weekend seven CrossFit Vero Beach athletes competed in the Disney Fit Challenge – Wendy, Rob, Hans, Drew, Mikaela, Liz and Chuck.
It was a GREAT weekend for many reasons:
- The venue (ESPN Wide World of Sports) was fantastic.
- The weather held out – no rain!
- We had a great cheering section – thank you Gary, Helen, Sue, Charlie, Jackie, Joe, Rizza, all the Bagbys, Amanda, Jim, Marten and all the Sullivans…
- We kicked butt!
Hans was tied for 2nd overall in the Men’s Rx division, but after the tie-breaker rule was bumped to 3rd. Point blank: he podiumed at his very first CrossFit competition! Furthermore, he was the ONLY male to finish every single event under the time cap.
Rob ended up 5th overall in the Men’s Rx division and won his age group!
Mikaela was 6th overall (right behind a Regional qualifier) and 1st in her age group!
Liz was 9th overall and powered through the last event like a champ, despite racking her shins on the previous event during the box jumps.
Wendy won the Female Rx division and was the only female to finish every event under the time cap.
Chuck finished the Master’s division in 12th, but unlike the Games, he had to compete with men 20 years his junior.
Lastly, Drew was KILLING it the first day, then wisely decided to pull out of Day 2 due to a knee injury. I know he was bummed, as he worked so hard, but he made the right decision.
I think everyone was happy with the weekend and we all had an awesome time together – such a great group we have!
