Thumbs up VBC Baghdad, CFT Competition!

After several days of back and forth, I finally have a date approved for a CFT competition to be held at the Victory gym. Date is March 8, will start early-ish in the morning. Please PM or email me on NIPR side if you are interested in participating or volunteering.

We will have medals and hopefully some prizes. If any person(s) or affiliate(s) are interested in sponsoring a prize, please contact me via PM.

Looking forward to seeing the turnout for this fun event!

Would go but I'm probably asleep during that time. Plus I dont think a 575 will hold any ground.

Re: VBC Baghdad, CFT Competition!

Amber,

Good luck with this. If my leave return date falls right, I'll swing by and check it out. More than likely though, I'll probably be back out at my COP by the time this rolls around. I hope you have a good turnout and a good event.

James - hope to see you there!

Base wide announcement went out today...not only did I get responses for the CFT competition itself, but also several people interested in getting started with CrossFit!

Re: VBC Baghdad, CFT Competition!

The competition went great today! We had 6 awesome, high-spirited lifters with good to excellent form. We also managed to gather a good sized spectator crowd throughout the competition .

Results as follows:

Female - 132.5lbs - CFT 159.9kgs (351.78lbs)

Female - 146lbs - CFT 184.7kgs (406.34lbs)

Male - 202lbs - CFT 431.8kgs (949.96lbs)

Male - 203.5lbs - CFT 417.4kgs (918.28lbs)

Male - 183lbs - CFT 485.4kgs (1067.88lbs)

Male - 173.5lbs - CFT 503.6kgs (1107.92lbs)

PAO took pictures of the entire event and I will try to get a few posted when I receive the link to them. They also did an interview with myself and 2 of the lifters.....so if anyone sees this on AFN - IGNORE ME! I was on hour 22 of being awake and definitly dehyrated!

Re: VBC Baghdad, CFT Competition!

Yay! The CFT and CF in general got a pretty decent write up in the base newspaper here. Sorry if the attachment is difficult to read.....I'm not very computer smart with altering documents. (What I do know is if you open the attachment, hold the control bottom and scroll with your mouse you can make it bigger).

One small misqoute - I said "aesthetic look" not "athletic look."
