The Break Through!
After two heartbreaking years at the 2013 & 2014 Southern California Regional, Team Kinnick finally broke through and is now on their way to the Reebok CrossFit Games! Years of commitment, consistency, and hard work paid off as Team Kinnick dominated the new, tougher, “super” California Regional. All the credit in the world goes out to this group for not letting the misfortunes of the past distract them from their goals of the present and the future. Lesser people would have crumbled under the pressure.
We couldn’t be more proud!
The top 5 teams from the California Regional punched their ticket to the Games this year. Team Kinnick took 3rd place overall with 5 top 5 finishes along the way. The only stumbles were on Events 4 & 5 (the handstand walks and the max snatch), but, even for those, they stepped up to the plate and outperformed everyone’s expectations, including their own.
The CrossFit Games
Team Kinnick will be competing July 22nd – July 26th. Head on over to games.crossfit.com and get your tickets so you can cheer them on! As usual, we had one of the biggest cheering sections all weekend long at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Let’s keep that gravy train rollin’. The StubHub Center is right in our own backyard. You won’t want to miss out on this year.
