CrossFit Games Week!
The CrossFit Games are this week, so get ready for inspiring movement. The Teen and Masters Competition begins on Tuesday at 9AM and runs until 6PM. We will stream them live at the gym. The Team and Individual Competitions begin on Friday with the finals for both on Sunday afternoon.
Last year I had the good fortune to attend the CrossFit Games and I enjoyed everything about it. One of the things that stood out for me was the tremendous fortitude of both the Teen and Masters. The venue is nowhere near capacity in the early part of the week, but the displays of heart and courage are outstanding. Please come in on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday this week and we can ooh and ahh together. The 2016 Games will be streamed online to YouTube and WatchESPN. In addition, 10 hours of competition will be broadcast to ESPN networks on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. See the full Games schedule here.
The drama in both the Team and Individual events is second to none, and the announcers do a good job of capturing it for the audience. Let’s watch the finals together on Sunday, July 24th, 3.30-6PM! Wine Country CrossFit will bring some beer while we ask you to bring your favorite mobility tool and a few snacks for nibbling. RSVP on the white board in the gym.
Finally, check out the Hayward Police Chief who is in the Masters Comp at the Games! She made it last year also, but left early when one or her officers was shot in the line of duty.
