Brethren Throwdown Competitors!

by Rob on June 28th, 2015

Congratulations to our three athletes who competed at the "Brethren CrossFit Throwdown" on Sunday at the Silver Creek Sportsplex in San Jose!

Gary took 7th place overall in the Men's Masters Division, which included a 3rd place finish on Event 4 (a max pistol effort following a max row effort... yuck!).  He showed determination and a cool head on game day, and his hard work is starting to really pay off in these competitions which test a well-rounded fitness.  We're so thrilled that your consistent efforts are starting to make everything click in competition, Gary!

Kim entered the final in 2nd place overall in the Women's Masters Division, thanks to three top-5 event finishes and a 2nd place finish on Event 4 (hello, pistols!).  She chipped away at the "surprise" final/fifth event which included burpee broad jumps, traveling double unders, and handstand walking, along with an ascending clean & jerk 5-rep ladder (which ended at OVER 95% OF HER 1RM!).  She completed the entire event, showing once again that she's one of the toughest competitors out there... great work, Kim!

Coach Sarah won the Women's Rx Division in dramatic fashion by closing out the final/fifth event ahead of the rest of the top-5 females.  She edged out a talented field of competitive women to secure the top spot on the podium and a $1,000 cash prize!    
A big thanks to our friends at Brethren CrossFit who ran a fantastic event - great energy, fun atmosphere, good programming, and solid logistics (i.e. everything ran on time!).  It's not an easy thing to do, so we appreciate all their hard work.

Congratulations to our competitors!  You all make us proud every time you step on the competition floor!
