CrossFit Cliffnotes – June 2019

Here’s the latest on what’s happening around the CrossFit Community:

  • Need to get pumped up, girls!?!?  Check out this hype video that was played before the “DÓTTIR WOD” at the Reykjavík Crossfit Championship. This WOD is a collaboration between Annie, Sara, and Katrin, and they hope it becomes a benchmark WOD across all boxes.

  • Turns out being a great trash talker can get you an invite to the Crossfit Games! Love him or hate him, Hunter McIntyre has received a wild card invite to the 2019 Games. McIntyre is a professional athlete and has been doing Crossfit for years but never qualified through the traditional process. Click here to watch his interview about why he should go to the Games.

  • The Rogue Invitational had several highlight moments and was considered one of the best Sanctionals this season! Tia-Clair Toomey and Mat Fraser showed us that there is no sign of them slowing down, as they both coasted to 1st place finishes. One of the most iconic moments was the Legends Division “Amanda” WOD where Crossfit OGs threw down just like they did back in 2010. Click here to watch them go at it.

  • Some “Fun” Stuff: Lauren Fisher got engaged to teammate Rasmus Andersen. Katrin Davidsdottir is releasing her first book in August. Crossfit deleted its Facebook and Instagram accounts over concerns about user privacy and data sharing. Will Moorad is going back to the Games- he hasn’t been there since 2014! Team Invictus X earned themselves another Games invite with their new team roster after their previous invite was revoked.

And as promised, some highlights from our own CFMY community!

  • Coach Meg and Bobby bought a house, got married on May 18 and just recently returned from their beautiful honeymoon in St. Maarten. Fun fact – they met at Crossfit Manayunk!

  • Krissy Baird crushed a new OHS PR – while at 25 weeks pregnant! Super impressive!

  • Speaking of fit moms, Bree Keohane did Murph this year as her first postpartum workout.

  • Kathy showed us some serious strength and was back squatting in the triple digits.

  • Lizzy and Carol faced a tough defeat at the Memorial Day pool party when Dave completely shut them out in beer pong.

  • Did you catch Dave and Pizza Jawn on 6ABC?! ICYMI – here it is.

  • SOOOOO many amazing front squat PRs all-around by our athletes! Way to stick with it through the progression – love hearing that bell ring!
