Heather Wood Top 15!

Posted by on Mar 22, 2010 in News | 14 comments

Just wanted everyone to know that Heather rocked the Sectionals this past weekend.

She came in 14th overall which qualifies her to compete in Regionals in Calgary around the end of May.

Event 1 was a sandbag run, and the pace she kept throughout made some of the others look like they were in slow motion in her heat. Her time was 1:02:2 putting her in 3rd place by .02 of a second.

Event 2 the Clean and Jerk, she got 125 overhead. Amazing. She was 20th place in this event. Some of the women up there were putting 165 overhead.  Crazy competition.

Event 3, Deadlift / ring pull up 21-15-9 was tough for most. Heather finished in 9:58.9 finishing 12th in this event.

Event 4, the grinder. AMRAP. 2 muscle ups, 4 front squat (105), 8 burpee box jump. After initial controversy regarding her muscle up technique, she carried on to complete 10 rounds of this event.  That effort gave her a tied spot for 15th in this event.

As a result of all this butt kicking, Heather was awarded 14th overall.

Great work Heather!!!

We have pics and video that will be added shortly.

Thank you to those from SJ who came up to support CrossFit Saint John this weekend.
