Games09NicoleGordonWallball.jpgCrossFit By Overload created this feel of the weekend video. Three days of competition, camaraderie and community. And did we mention beer?

Pictured is Nicole Gordon from CrossFit Hampton Roads next to Libby DiBiase from CrossFit Omaha. This is during the Event 5 Couplet of 3 rounds of 30 wallball and 30 squat snatches. Nicole had just returned from the Emergency Room to compete in this event. She smashed two of her fingers on the stake drive in Event 4, finishing the event in spite of the blood. When X-rays revealed no fracture, she and her husband Jeremy raced back to make her heat.

Judging Nicole is Kurtis Bowler from Rainier CrossFit, and judging Libby is Dave Werner from CrossFit Seattle. The picture was taken by Thomas Campitelli from CrossFit Oakland, who took a fork lift up to the roof of the Shop for a unique perspective.

We'll have more competition action coming soon.

And the great TomC did all that while shoveling down a bowl of vanilla ice cream!
