What else would you do on the 14th of February? Well if you are a keen CrossFitter, you would do a CrossFit Comp of course, Battle in the Switch 2015 was held on Saturday, you can read about the WOD’s and the winners on their page.
What amazed me at this competition was the team spirit I was seeing across many of the teams, high fives and group hugs was the order of the day, with a challenging 3rd WOD and many of the athletes doing muscle ups for the first time, the atmosphere at one stage was so on edge, I was sure that every person watching was helping to get each athlete over the bar. If you have never been to a CrossFit comp as a spectator then i suggest you go and support your fellow Crossfitters.
I am not surprised to read in comments on my Facebook page that many of the athletes were doing things that they had not done before. To anyone who has not been to a CrossFit competition as an athlete, I suggest you make it a priority to give one a go, even if you feel that you are not good enough yet, you never know what you will be able to achieve, and unless you give it a go you will never know. To all those I captured doing their first rep, congratulations awesome work.
I cant wait to get on the other side of the lens and have a go myself. Looking forward to a comp of my own in the future.
