CFSBK at the Crow Hill Open: A Recap
Over the weekend we promised to fill you in on how CFSBKers did at the USAW Crow Hill Open, and today we’re bringing you that recap. You guys have been competing so much lately, and we’re proud of each and every one of you! As you can probably tell from the video above, much ass was kicked. Here’s how each of our lifters fared:
This was Morit S.’s first weightlifting meet, and she killed it! The Crow Hill Open, she said, “was a great and fun experience! I need to give a serious shout out to Coach Ro. I had no idea how much it takes to be the coach at an Olympic weight lifting meet.”
Francine D. hit 45 kg on her opening Snatch. “I am still focused on qualifying for Masters Nationals in 2018,” she told us, “so I’m signed up to try again at Brooklyn Barbell in August. Working with Coach Ro has been an amazing experience and having Morit and Katie as teammates invaluable. I’m looking forward to crushing it next month ;-)”
It was also Katie H.‘s first meet, and here’s how it went down: “Made my last Clean and Jerk attempt and qualified for Masters Nationals in my age and weight class in my first meet. Loved it. And would love to support anyone else willing to try, we are competing at Brooklyn Barbell Open August 26-27 so reach out and join!”
Jacob M. hit 93 kg on the Snatch and 130 kg for the Clean and Jerk. “Was my first time lifting in competition, he reported, “and to say I had the jitters would be an understatement. Didn’t perform well in the Snatches but used the adrenaline to my advantage in the Clean and Jerk and ended with a 3 kg PR.” Congrats, Jacob!
Competing in the 85 kg weight class, Alex B.‘s best Snatch was 109 kg, and his best Clean and Jerk was 135 kg, for an impressive total of 244 kg. This qualified him for Masters Nationals!
Last but certainly not least and also competing in the 85 kg weight class, Coach Ro Snatched 103 kg and crushed his Clean and Jerk at 135 kg, also qualifying for Masters Nationals! Here’s what he had to say: “I totaled 238 kg, put me in 3rd place of the session and 6th overall out of 20 lifters in the 85kg weight class. This is a PR total for me and I’m currently ranked 8th in the nation by USAW in the 85kg masters 40-44 group. This was the first meet I’ve done since Masters Nationals in 2016. It was a great experience and a well-run event. It was also great to have other folks there in the same weight class lifting with me from CFSBK.”
Congrats, everyone! We posted some video of the men lifting last week. You can see the full results here. Check back in with the blog tomorrow to find out how CFSBKers did at Hail to the Team at CrossFit Queens this past weekend!
