This past weekend Sklar and Brett put their hard work to the test and competed in the Nor Cal Regional games. The competition was intense as over 200 athletes competed for only 10 spots in this years “CrossFit Games”. The workouts were brutally hard which forced a large number of athletes to scales the workouts down in order to even finish them. This is a testament to the quality of athlete, as well as the splash that the North State intends to make once the CrossFit games roll around.
Saturday saw both Brett and Skylar complete two workouts. They each performed the workouts as Rx”d and had strong showings which earned them a shot to compete on Sunday. Sunday”s workout was a beast that had the crowd a buzz hours before it was officially announced. Once all eligible competitors has sufficiently tortured their bodies, the points were tabulated and the winners announced. Sklar impressed all with a solid #14th place finish proving beyond a doubt that she will be in contention for the games for many years. Brett placed an impressive #34 place out of roughly #150 male athletes!
Our Nor Cal Neighbor Crossfit Nor Cal and Crossfit Redding also worked extremely hard and had some truly impressive performances.
