What an amazing weekend!

The Reebok CrossFit Games Europe Regional came to a close yesterday and what an unbelievable weekend it turned out to be. The CrossFit community were brought together for a spectacular and inspirational show of performances from athletes all across Europe.

 

Our affiliate team went into the competition as the eighth highest placed European team in the Open so we knew there'd be some tough competition looking to finish in one of the top three places and qualify for the Reebok CrossFit Games Finals in California in July. After a third and fourth placed finish in Friday's workouts we were joint second going into day two. Another two strong performances on day two left us in third place with two events left on the final day. Unfortunately we were unable to hold on to our position and we finished in fourth place overall at the end of the weekend. It was a great team effort from all involved and although we narrowly missed out on qualification for the Finals we should all be hugely proud of our performances and what we have achieved.

 

Congratulations to CrossFit Leeds athlete Lee Howe who finished in an impressive 19th place overall - that's 19 places higher than his ranking in the Open. Lee smashed through the Deadlift/Box Jump workout to earn a 5th placed finish then went on to show a gutsy performance in WOD 4 completing his 100 Overhead Squats with just two seconds to spare.

 

I would also like to say a huge thank you to all the CrossFit Leeds members who got involved with the event. From the judges and volunteers to the media moguls and supporters. There was a massive showing from our guys and you have all helped make the weekend the success that it was.

 

Training for next year starts here!

Also a big thank you to all our athletes who have given up their time to help out at the event as judges and volunteers and to everyone coming to support us. This will be a true community event of like minded people coming together for a fun weekend doing what we love.

 

We'll try and keep you up to date over the weekend with pictures and results on our Facebook page and there'll also be live updates from Twitter here.
