Alabama (inc. TN, MS) Sectional

Bama Sectional Final Results

The Alabama sectional, which includes both Tennessee and Mississippi wrapped up just this last weekend. Russell Berger, former CrossFit Games competitor directed the event and checked in with the following.

"Day two wrapped up well. We had great energy, a roaring crowd, and a strong showing from all competitors. Handstand Push-ups ate some peoples lunch, but most of them grinded away at them, first place in the final event going to both Rich Froning (shown above) and Michelle Kinney (also pictured), who placed 1st overall at the end of the competition. Special awards were given to the 1st place finishers of 'The Corps' WOD from the Marines. Drew Shamblin and Christina Van Der Hulst both received engraved ammo cans filled with concrete."

First time at a CrossFit Games Event. My wife and I have been doing CrossFit @ CrossFit Impulse since last week of January of this year. It was great to see what the long term results will be.
We volunteered selling T-Shirts for the various affiliates that participated. This turned out very well, making ~$800-900 each day on T-shirts. I'm telling you, there's a HUGE market for CrossFit apparel, it can EASILY go the way of TAPOUT or even UnderArmor. Specially if you start making apparel and gear that works for the various aspects of CrossFit, instead of specific sports like most gear/apparel out there.
The AL/TN/MS sectionals were a great inspiration; I saw great camaraderie, and friends and family support. It was great to have the Marine Corps, Hi-Temp, and 2Pood there. Getting more vendors (sports authority, Academy, Dick's, Nike..hey why not) and the military with their cool recruiting tents, obstacle courses, and rock climbing walls could really make it a great event for the community (but drop the spectator price to like $10/person). As a result you would get more people signed up for CrossFit.

Good luck to everyone going to Regionals!

Just wanted to tell Russell and all the volunteers thanks for a great first time CrossFit event experience. Russell and all the judges did a great job and handled all situations very professionals. Pull up bar malfunction was handled perfectly, wall ball target was hard to hit which is the way its supposed to be, and the standards for all the workouts were different from what most people had trained at which is what CrossFit is all about, the unknown and unknowable. Congratulations to all competitors and I look forward to seeing you all in Jacksonville.
