Crossfit Open 17.1 Throw Down:
To celebrate the start of the 2017 Crossfit Games, a few of our members got together on Friday night to start the open season with a bang. Thanks for Prem for the video.
CFT Annual Christmas awards:
Once again we had our annual Christmas awards. This year we went back to 3 awards, Athletes Athlete voted for by the members, Coaches athlete voted for by all of the coaches and Most improved also voted for by the coaches.
1st Anita Card by a landslide victory. If we all didn’t know her and what she has been through this year we probably wouldn’t of even know that she was diagnosed with Cancer. She continued training throughout her treatments and with a smile on her face. A great inspiration and worthy winner.
2nd Mike Philips. Always pushing hard and bringing up the standard of the box. He also has helped many since passing his Level 1 coaches course.
1st Sophie Grant. Having had her second knee operation a year ago she has gone onto smashing new PB’s, qualifying for major comps such as Battle of the Beasts and been an all round team player in the gym.
2nd Emma Tiong. Emma has been in the top 3 for both Athletes & Coaches athlete awards for the past few years and there is pretty much nothing she hasn’t mastered this year.
1st Claire Palmer. Claire has come on leaps and bounds this year, from scaling wods to now winning many of them. Claire is now one of our strongest females and is consistently give Rich a run for his money.
2nd Jacqui Harding. Jacqui only missed out winning by 1 vote. Over the last year she has made huge improvements particularly in her gymnastic skills. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see her joining the muscle up club next year.
