Games09ACupNWCFCleanFinals.jpgCongratulations to Northwest CrossFit!

Northwest CrossFit team members were Paul Zavaglia, Zak Middleton, Alex Vlaski, Lindsey Dion, Amanda Barelli, and Laura Asbell. They had a dominant performance on Friday. Out of the 97 teams competing, they finished 12th in the OHS/Pullup (897), 3rd on the run (11:27.9), and 4th on the Stadium workout (16:02.8).

This put them in a phenomenal position for Sunday's Finals. After the scoring error was clarified, there was only one way they could be caught and not take the cup. If they finished last in the final workout AND second place CrossFit Central won the workout, then Central would take home the cup. Technically, they would have tied, but Central would have won the built-in tiebreak process.

Well, Northwest didn't come in last (and Central didn't come in first). They finished 4th, with a time of 35:10. In the workout, only one male and one female athlete were allowed to work at one time (with the exceptions of toes to bar and muscle-ups, for which only one athlete could go at a time).

CrossFit by Overload made this video of them ... [wmv] [mov]

Next time I head back to the Seattle area to visit my family I'll have to stop by! I think we were in each of the CFNW team's heats. Great athletes. Watching the one guy do 90% of the muscle ups was great. I am sure it was the cheering of the team that got him through :)
