After 5 weeks of announcements, anxious Fridays at work, boring workout explanations, exciting head-to-head matchups, Friday nights under the lights, broken lights, new lights, Kirkland’s Lights, Mastercards, Visas, dinners at Buena Vistas, Janet (pronounced yahnay), partays, chest to bar pullups, huggies pullups, overhead squats, overhead dots, muscle-ups, hustle-ups, jump ropes, high hopes, rowers, snow-blowers, pre-workout, recovery, red-lines, flat-lines, clocks, jocks, barbells, bar smells, bumpers, jumpers, no reps, bro reps, pee-yoos and re-do’s, the Open has come to an end. As many of you have already said, this year’s Open Competition has been a blast! A very big thanks to Megan for coming up with the idea to split into 2 teams and have our own competition. Because of that idea and the response from those who signed up, this competition has been very successful. As for which team had more success…
Quick Recap: In Week 1, Team-D won by 7 points (162 to 155) combined on Workouts 15.1 and 15.1a. Then The A-Team won consecutive weeks by a total of 8 points (83 to 77 on Workout 15.2 and 71 to 69 on Workout 15.3). Team-D responded by winning 15.4 by 4 points (73 to 69).
This week’s Results: It came down to Week 5 of our first in-house competition. Both teams needed a strong showing to finish on top. With rowing, thrusters and no time-cap this week proved to be difficult for everyone. All the score sheets have been turned in and the points have been totaled. The winner of the 2015 CFMT Open Team Competition is….The A-Team!!! It was a close victory for The A-Team, winning by only 2 points (75 to 73). Great showing by both teams. Everyone worked hard to earn a win for their team.
Quick Breakdown: The A-Team had 6 top finishers, while Team-D had 4. The A-Team’s athletes Mo and Chelsey took first place in the Rx’d division, while the Spirit Award went to Team-D’s Colin Sargeant (well-deserved).
The A-Team has won the trophy, a group picture to be displayed in the gym, and bragging rights for a year! The trophy will be delivered some time in the next few weeks and everyone’s name from The A-Team will be put on the trophy.
Everyone competed hard and made this whole competition worth all of the work. Thanks guys!
