A report from the wilds of Austin, TX! Thanks to Nicole Holstrom from CrossFit Central for the update.
The CrossFit Central Team just left today for Cali!! We're so excited for the Games!!!
The Fittest Games Challenge was developed to seek out top CrossFitters from the Southern region and send them to compete at the CrossFit Games.
Once a month a challenge was held in different locations across Texas including Breakaway Speed and the Dynamax facility.
To win the Grand Prize - Round Trip Airfare, Hotel Accomadation, and Entrance to the CrossFit Games - the athlete had to compete at the Elite level and complete all four challenges. Affiliates from across Texas sent their clients out to the challenges to represent them and join in the competition for a chance to compete at the CrossFit Games this July.
Texas affiliates, kettlebells, hill runs, deadlifts, pull ups, squats, med ball work, and Mark Rippetoe ensured these challenges were consistently intense! By the final challenge the Grand Prize competitors were within points of each other - This year Lisa Bender of Austin , TX Kris Kepler of Austin, TX, and Ken Kutrer of Ft. Worth, TX are heading to the Games and representing as Elite athletes from Texas!
