    You guys are awesome!! Just a pleasure watching you all weekend. All your hard work was rewarded, and you all worked together like you’d been doing this as a team for years. So, so proud of you.

    Rachel I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything as impressive as your wall climbs. I was actually screaming while watching it.

    And Hobart kinda has blue steel going in that picture.

    • Yes! I was out of my seat yelling at the computer! Rachel you are AMAZING! Flinging your tenacious self up and over that 6′ wall was all grit.

    • Colleen (OC)

      Rachel over the wall was so awesome…. You’re so tiny, which just goes to show how strong you are to get over that wall!

  11. Wrote on the CFNE fb page but can’t overdo the congratulations on this one! Was so much fun to watch, especially knowing how hard you all worked for this and how much time Ben has put into programming, counseling, etc. So nice when the good guys win!

    Rachel, speaking of your wall climbs…omg, I was so nervous watching you throw both your legs, head first, over that wall. Over the vault she goes.

  12. Wendy P

    Amazing performances all around this weekend by all of our athletes. Congrats guys!

  42. rich t

    loved watching the Masters and Team A tearing it up. did we lead for affiliate participation with 9 athletes.

    AMRAP 15 – 1 + 21 (2 abmats)

  43. Andy M

    AMRAP 15 Diane:Finished Diane doing 21(Rx for 15 reps/205# 7) then did set of 9 at 205# and final set of 15 at 135#. Wrenched back a bit on first set of deads; probably should have stopped.

  44. Michelene

    Congratulations CFNE Team A and Masters!! You are all just so good at EVERYTHING – it is amazing to watch and you make us all proud to be part of the CFNE community!

    AMRAP 15 Diane: 1 + 49 (105# & 2AMPUs)

  45. Jared S

    Incredible job Team A. It’s an honor to be associated with such a group of talented and well regarded athletes like yourselves. After watching the games we can also really appreciate Ben’s programming and his understanding of what it takes to make people complete Crossfit competitors. Feels great to be a part of CFNE.

  46. Rick W.

    Congrats all CFNE competitors! You are all champions!
    AMRAP 15 Diane: 1+28 RX

    1+67 rx

  48. Rachel E

    Congratulations, CFNE Team A!! So, so fun to watch your incredible performance and it was especially great after seeing all the hard work you put in day in and day out, year-round, to get there. So proud to call CFNE my home and learn from the BEST!

    AMRAP 15 Diane: 1 + 44 (135#, box HSPU)
    Two goats for me but I’m really glad I did box HSPU instead of abmats for a change — full ROM seems like it will help me improve more than the shallow ROM using abmats (fun fact!).

  49. Ashley R

    Way to go CFNE Team A. So awesome!

    Amrap Diane:
    115# deadlift (no matter how light..always hurts the piriformis!) kip hspu 1 round plus 26

    I have never done that many hspu’s in a WOD …they are getting there.
    Great coaching John Doole!!!

  50. Marcus

    Amazing job team and masters. Very inspiring!
