BC Qualifier

image
The Crossfit Games Sectionals concluded this Sunday with stellar results from our crew in a very strong and impressive field of 80 athletes from all around British Columbia. It was a really inspiring event that was expertly organized and run by Jesse and Heather of Crossfit Squamish. The top 15 in the men's and women's divisions qualified for a spot in the nationals in Calgary on May 29th and 30th. We were all extremely impressed with the depth and strength of the field. There were a lot of really gnarly Crossfitters at this event. Our very own Emily Beers took first place among the women with strong showings from Christa (3rd), Girly (8th), Aimee (13th) and Rhea (15th). On the boys side Colin Macaulay (11th) and Peter "Bamm Bamm" O'Sullivan (12th) had excellent performances, highlighted by a thrilling 2nd, 3rd place finish in the 2,000 meter row. Along with Andy, who has automatically qualified for the nationals, we have eight athletes who are eligible to go to Calgary in May. That is the most by any affiliate in BC. Congratulations guys! A big shout out to the rest of the crew who participated (Marco, Reto, Dober, Kyle, Jayboy) your efforts represented us with dignity and class. We would also like to congratulate former Crossfit Van apprentice coach Pete Kendrick who won the mens title.
