Invictus Victorious in Their Heat

Two rotations into the Affiliate Cup, Northwest CrossFit was two points ahead of CrossFit Invictus, making their final WODs intense events.

Reports from The Hill indicate Northwest did not win its heat but placed well, while a large and vocal crowd gathered at the Stadium to watch Invictus.

The San Diego team struggled with several missed wall-ball reps early on but was redeemed when Sage Burgener (pictured), daughter of CrossFit Olympic Lifting Coach Mike Burgener, knocked out almost 30 straight shots.

The crew moved to the row, push press, box jump and kettlebell swing well in front of the other affiliates. They moved to the deadlift portion 1:38 in front of their competition but couldn't match the pace set by Front Range CrossFit earlier in the day. With a time over 18 minutes, Invictus sits well back of Front Range's 14:20.

That didn't stop Invictus' supporters from screaming loudly from start to finish, and excitement builds as the final heats are being completed.

I bet Sage is the most famous Xfitter of all to the people working out on their own in garages and learning from her videos. Way to go, Sage!
