Yet another @crossfitgames season is behind us. Thank you @thedavecastro and everyone else who came together to create this opportunity for the athletes to test themselves.
The season has been long and we’ve put in more work than ever to support @thetrainingplan athletes in their journey. Now it is time to recover, reflect and uncover the lessons from this years Games and Regionals in preparation for the upcoming season.
I am proud of all @thetrainingplan athletes competing at this years @crossfitgames : @anniethorisdottir (13th), she will be back stronger than ever in 2017, @hogberglukas (14th), his highest finish at the CrossFit Games so far, @bk_gudmundsson (8th), established himself as one of the top male CF athletes in the world with his 2nd top 10 finish in 2 consecutive years. in 2017 the eyes will be on the podium, @mitchsinnamon (37th), 1st but not the last Games for this guy. @crossfitnordvest (5/6 athletes) 12th in their rookie year at the Games.
Big thank you to @crossfitsb_torrance for providing a place to train in LA, @frederikaegidius for his coaching help with the athletes, @mobilitymatt for keeping the athletes bodies healthy @darrenellis75 for nutrition support, @mr_glutes for his programming support through the year, @mypowersupply for providing the athletes with delicious meals in LA, @thekennykane for his friend/mentorship, @brianmackenzie for helping us with running and swimming prep in LA, @nwr_productions for his excellent work and commitment to @crossfitnordvest team, @crossfituppsala for helping @hogberglukas at the Games and Regionals, and finally @frankienewall for putting up with me and dealing with the logistics.
It takes a village to get the athletes to the Games so huge thank you to everyone who has been part of this project in 2016 (you know who you are). After 6 years of coaching athletes at @crossfitgames, we are just getting started, the journey will continue in 2017..
