Regional Run-down

Swing by tonight for the Canada West Regional After Party – 8pm to 2am. The competition this weekend was pretty awesome.  I was fortunate enough to see all of Friday and Saturday afternoon workouts.  These competitors are legit!  Surviving 6 workouts to find Western Canada’s top 2 female, male and teams that will go on to the Games certainly had to prepare more than ever before. Congrats to Emily who had a focus that I’ve never seen before.  Em just missed that top spot and came in 3rd. An impressive finish, we are so proud of our Eunice! Rhea who finished 17th, held strong right through to the last WOD where her back lit up which shows how much stress is put on these athletes and it is amazing to watch how they carry on. Another amazing performance seen all weekend. THE CFV TEAM! Placing 9th. Consisting of Lumber, Dan, Poker, Fancypants, Quin, Caroline, Ben and Mar were outstanding! Lumber PB'ed his snatch on the 5th WOD by 20lbs! The calmness of this group was great and everyone put up their best efforts despite some judging challenges that were not in our favour. A huge WELL DONE goes out to Sheppy! Who has taken on the role of coach for these athletes! The heart and time he gave to everyone certainly had them at their full potential for the weekend. Thanks SHEP! Many of our students and coaches attended the whole weekend volunteering, judging, and cheering on our hopefuls and friends from around western Canada. Thanks to everyone that came out, you have no idea how much our athletes appreciate the cheering and how it pushes them that little bit more! So when you see these people in the school this week give them a fist pump/hug.....whatever you want!
