To celebrate our official 10th birthday, we are bringing back our Championship. We had our first Championship on October 2, 2004 at our gym in Sand Point Magnuson Park. WHO was there?? Greg Glassman and Lauren Glassman were there along with Greg's son, Blake. Athena was there too! Kurtis and Laurie Bowler were there -- Kurtis competed. See picture below! Laurie and Kurtis had recently started Rainier CrossFit. Craig Patterson was there who would later start CrossFit Vancouver. Also Scotty Hagnas was there who would later start CrossFit Portland. Brian Mulvaney came out and competed! Tyler Hass who started ringtraining.com was there. He wrote up an nice article for the CrossFit Journal about the first CrossFit Championship that you can read here. And many other fabulous folks who participated or observed.
We had 28 participants and 1 event. The fastest time was 12:33 by Micky Snir. The picture below is of the white board explaining the workout that day -- no one knew what it was until the day of. Dave got a time of 14:13 and came in 5th. Nancy came in 17th (2nd for the ladies - there were only 3 of us!) with a time of 19:35. And we had a blast.
This year's Championship is going to be even more fun. Our Championship is designed so that any and all of our clients can participate. Each event can be scaled, so please consider participating in the FUN!
