FINAL STANDINGS – CANADA WEST FINALS

Congratulations to Team Overdrive as we have finished 9th overall in the Crossfit Games Canada West Finals! Only the top 2 teams advance to the Finals in California at the Home Depot Centre. Over 30 teams started out, then 19 made it out to the Regionals. Only 10 out of 19 teams would qualify for the final day…we were one of them! An amazing weekend featured lots of heart and determination, friendship, camaraderie, overcoming fears of competition, and fears of being in the spotlight amongst the very best in Canada including CF Vancouver, CF Calgary, and CF Taranis. At one point, we were always in the fastest heats against the best teams. This made us very proud to see as it showed that through hard work, committment, and dedication to being a better athlete and person at Overdrive, has translated into results outside the box and within our bigger Crossfit community. We all made new friendships, witnessed some of the best go at it, and definitely came out with more experience, inspiration, and the pure determination to get better and be back at the Crossfit Games 2012!

Honorable mentions to Grace for her eye-opening 155 lb thruster performance that put her in the same breath as the strongest CF women in North America…she even got tweeted on! Dave, a month into Crossfit, also superman-like with his 220 lb thruster and 21 unbroken 275 lb deadlifts! Jacky, oh Jacky! What can we say? This man showed the utmost courage and determination in trying and trying to finish his muscle-ups even when he had no skin left on his hands as he painted the white rings all red! I guess doing almost 100 CTB Pull-ups the previous day could not have helped! Kevin doing his usual thing and keeping the team competitive with his metcon skills, Vanessa catching the team up by 5 spots with her come-from-behind “bang out those deadlifts and jump like a rabbit” mad effort, and Jane “Insaney” Jane, Miss one leg wonder with her flying KB hair hopping around doing crazy things like OHS and DUs!
We love you guys! You are all leaders and inspire us to be better each day!
