The Spirit of the Open this week goes to a couple athletes! First off Sandra!! This is Sandra’s first CrossFit Open and she is still pretty new to CrossFit. It’s safe to say she (along with most of us!) gets nervous for these workouts. Well, to add to that, Sandra was on her way to the gym early Sunday morning to hit 17.4 when she got a flat tire. She wasn’t sure if she would even make it, but she got the situation taken care of, showed up late, got a quick warm up, and did the workout probably still a bit frazzled! Awesome job Sandra! We would also like to award points to Stephanie S, Christian, and Rita. All three of these athletes had their bars ready and loaded to do the scaled version….however, just moments (literally) before 3, 2,1… they each decided to step things up and go RX!! We are so proud of them for pushing themselves!
The photo of the week, which are below, is once again a tie. We love the pic of Melis congratulating Eliana after she reached her goal of getting a HSPU at the end of the workout. Just pure joy there (and probably relief for Eliana for putting that WOD behind her!). The other pic we love is Lisa, Kaila and Elsa all sprawled on the ground after pushing HARD through that workout. They literally left it all on the floor! All of those athletes get a bonus point for their teams.
For the Team Spirit Award, we are actually going to give a bonus point to only one team this week. Although everyone did something, which we love seeing…..ONE team went above and beyond and executed a plan that took a lot of work, so the bonus point this week goes to Yo Mama!!!! They had a “Hollywood” sign cut out into huge letters and a Titanic prop as well. They went the extra mile so they deserve a true bonus point this week.
For Week MVP, we chose Cathy! Cathy is present every weekend, not only with a huge smile, but filled with optimism and practically helping to judge every heat. We SO appreciate your positive attitude and all your help throughout the open!
