Today’s post is a recap of festivities at the CrossFit Games Sectionals in Hunstville. I want to congratulate Brandon and Coach CBo for having the guts to go compete and represent CrossFit Ktown. Neither were able to qualify, but both were very close until the last WOD which had two of Brandon’s personal hells and two movements which destroyed Caleb’s injured shoulder.

Here it is… Day 1 – Saturday

8:45 AM: Coach G (head judge) and Russell demo the standards for the first workout.

9:00 AM: WOD 1 – 3 Rounds: Sprint 50m, 10 Burpees, 7 Power Cleans (155lb)

9:45 AM: First men’s heat begins and Brandon is in it. He’s just lucky that way.

4:05 PM: Brandon’s heat is underway.

    Laughing out loud at this post.
    Also, you have once again found a picture of me doing a snatch that makes it appear as if I am competent in the movement, way to go~!

  2. Brandon March 8, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    And in all seriousness, thanks so much to:

    Caleb for competing alongside me.
    Kirsten for coming for a little while before flying out to Florida.
    Josh and Rachel for giving up their entire weekend to come cheer us on.
    Jessie and Grant for giving up their entire weekend to judge.
    Mike McGoldrick for being a badass.

    That is all.

  3. Coach CBo March 8, 2010 at 8:01 pm

    Yeah, to second everything Brandon just said…Thanks to Grant and Jessie for helping out so much, Josh, Kirsten, and Rach for helping coach/cheer us on and among the competitors (specifically) Mike M., Mike B., and Stephen H. and everyone else for being inspirations the whole weekend! Some REALLY strong and fit dudes showed up to represent the three states in this competition, and I can’t wait to see how they do in Jacksonville!!!!

  4. Coach G March 9, 2010 at 8:30 am

    Great weekend to all. There were some very impressive performances. A few that stick out in my mind would be McGoldrick on WOD 2, Drew Shamblin on the run/pull-up wod, and Rich Froning Jr. on the AMRAP. It always amazes me how far these guys can go and how much pain they can deal with. I am constantly having to reevaluate my mental toughness meter…

  5. Ben March 9, 2010 at 8:49 am

    Thanks for the great post to catch us up on the festivities. I know that everyone that made the journey represented Knoxville amazingly!

    The picture of “Erin” is amazing/scary, but falls short. Maybe (and I stress maybe) it would have been a closer representation before CFKT and definitely before Paleo.

    The girl definitely has the same intensity. But our Erin is way better hands down.

    I am so proud of the Titans of Greatness commonly referred to as Brandon Bergin and Caleb Boaz by us puny mortals! Though I have been busy getting my bronze on in Fl I was thoroughly disappointed that I missed the epic events that followed my departure. Even though they did not qualify individually for the regionals, Brandon and Caleb still managed to display an awesome show of testosterone packed strength and endurance. Head Judge Grant and Judge Jesse demonstrated the poise, expertise, and constant enthusiasm necessary to be an exemplary coach and judge despite an exhaustingly long day and ongoing hunger pangs. Sweet job all around guys!

  7. james March 9, 2010 at 9:17 am

    sorry i couldn’t make it guys. i was on pain killers from my surgery and not in a good mood because i was not in huntsville playing rugby and cheering you guys on. great post detailing the event. i know ktown was represented well. still have pins in the thumb but got a shiny new cast this morning. hope to see ya’ll soon.

  8. Erin March 9, 2010 at 9:21 am

    Awesome post! I’m so proud of Caleb & Brandon – way to go, guys! You rocked it.

    And yes, freaky picture. Exact same color hair! And she’s yelling which is usually what I’m doing… Love it!

  9. crossfitktown March 9, 2010 at 9:21 am

    James and Kirsten, I can’t wait for both of you to be back in the gym!

  10. crossfitktown March 9, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    Yes Erin I thought the resemblance was scary. She even had your exact haircut…but all in all you are way cuter! But she has to be taking yelling cues from you.
