Fittest in Cape Town

We had our Fittest in Cape Town (South Africa) inaugural event this Saturday. It was superbly organised and quite taxing. I thought I would share the days four events with you.

We hope that next year the total competitors will double. CrossFit is still a very new sport in South Africa but growing fast.

The titles were decided in 4 workouts throughout the day:

Workout 1: Complete as many rounds as possible in 12 minutes of:
* 50 Rope Jumps
* 10m Walking lunges (with 11.3/4.5kg held overhead)
* 15 Kettlebell swings (with 24/16kg)
* 10m Walking lunges (with 11.3/4.5kg held overhead)
* 100m Run
The workout was performed outside on grass.
Top score women: Kate Munnik (4 Rounds + Rope jumps + WL).
Top csore Men: Neil Scholtz (5 Rounds).


Workout 2: Within 7 Minutes: Perform your 5RM Deadlift. Add to this number your best 3 sets of Pull ups.
Top score women: Janie Smit (119kg).
Top score men: Grant Elario (232kg).

Workout 3: Men: Row 375m, perform 50 Wallball shots (7kg ball) onto a 3m high target, row 375m.
Top score: Neil Scholtz (4min 55sec).
Women: Row 250m, perform 30 Wallball shots (4.5kg ball) onto a 3m high target, row 250m.
Top score: Kathryn Green (4min 05sec).

Workout 4: “Last Man/Women standing”. With a running clock, within the first minute, perform 1 Burpee + jump over barbell and 1 Thruster (Front squat + Push press) with 29/15kg. Within the second minute, perform 2 Burpee + jumps over barbell and 2 Thrusters, etc. until you cannot perform the required number any more. Every rep counts.
Top score women: Ellie Hagopian (10 Rounds, 11 Burpees, 7 Thrusters).
Top score men: Craig Reichman (11 Rounds).


Congratulations to all the athletes for their amazing performances and a huge thank you to everyone that volunteered or came to watch and support!

Thank you Joshua. The comp highlighted a lot of weak areas for me, so I have to kick things up a notch.
