Leah, Cori, Cherie, and Matt brutalized themselves yesterday participating in the Summer Strength Challenge in Oroville at Level 10 CrossFit. A handfull of short heavy WODs included a good handful of the CrossFit exotics such as tires, ropes, sandbags, wall climbs, and farmer walk handles, as well as the basics like deadlifts, thrusters, and rowing.
As always the competition at this event brought out some of the most bad ass athletes from all over NorCal. All of our competitors had some strong performances as well as got a chance to learned about some of their weakeness. The Strength Challenge is a great place for advanced CrossFitters to go and get a gut check. If you think you are good and you want to know, do this event!
Props to Cori for making the final event in 6th place. Also props to Charlie from WarriorZ who qualified for the men's final and ended up officially taking 4th place after the Final event. In an unusual fashion, the scores from the first 4 workouts were thown out and only the final workout was counted for overall placings. Some standings were shaken up pretty well by this twist including Ben Alderman from CF Gold getting knocked of the podium even though he was clearly the top performer of the day.
