This past weekend, as you may have seen from our social media bombardment, there was a CrossFit competition held at Harbor Park CrossFit in Kenosha called the Shipwreck part 2. CrossFit Beloit had the most teams competing, with a total of 7 male/female teams! Everyone came out and rocked the competition and represented CFB to the fullest! We also had a lot of supporters there, which is always nice to have!!

Scaled Team Highlights:
Stranger Danger (Justin and Kristen) got 9th place overall and their best event was the 800m run, getting 4th place with a time of 2:42, and just edging out his twin brother Jon for the win! Kristen and Justin rocked every event and also had a strong finish on the last event of the dreaded assault bike, dumbbell snatches, push ups and knee raises.
Mawidge (Liz and Kevin) placed 10th, proving that couples that CrossFit together do well in competitions together! Their best finish was a 7th place finish in the last event, and they finished it out with 25 unbroken hanging knee raises! Impressive guys! They had two 9th place finishes and I believe some PR's for both in the snatch ladder!
Pain Train (Jon and Gwen) ended up in 13th place and came in 5th place during the 800m run with a time of 2:43. They came up with a 9th place finish in the partner dead lift and thruster workout, and Gwen rocked her first official competition!
For Bacon We Burpee (Lindsay and Zach) ended in 18th place and though no burpees where done, they sure earned that bacon! Both had impressive snatches during the ladder to earn them their best finish of the day. They also rocked the last event and flew through those dumbbell snatches!
Kipping It Real (Mary and Pete) ended in 20th place and had their best finish in 10th place for the snatch ladder. Both Mary and Pete got a new PR on their hang snatch! That olympic lifting has been paying off for them! Their next best event was the last even and Mary looked just like Sara Sigmundsdottir on that bike with her hair blowing in the wind. Pete looked like a brick house during the dead lifts!
Rx Team Highlights
Jell-O-Squats (Scott and Katie) not only rocked the best shirts of the competition, but also their workouts. The placed 6th overall and missed the finals by a slim 2 points. They placed 1st during the 800m with a blazing time of 2:22! They got 6th place on the last event and did an amazing job with those toes to bar!
#Schweaty (Cindy and Jamie) Cindy had a last minute partner change with a member of the Harbor Park gym who did an awesome job. They came in 9th place and had their best event finish on event 3 with a 6th place finish. They owned the dead lifts and thrusters and made that weight look easy. Cindy had a PR on the snatch ladder as well!
Swole Train (Mandi and Jamie) finished in 11th place and had their best finish with event 1, the snatch ladder. Mandi rocked the hand stand push ups in her first Rx competition and Jamie loved riding that bike! Both did a great job on the dead lifts as well!
Overall, the competition was fun (and hot!) and everyone that competed did an amazing job. It is so nice to see the camaraderie between our members even when they are competing against one another. Seeing the member support in those that come to cheer on all of those competing is also something that is amazing to see. The CFB community is the best! We hope that some of you have caught the competition bug and will continue to put yourself in situations that make you a little uncomfortable while doing CrossFit! As always, we will make announcements as to when there are more competitions if you want to get involved!
