North European Sectional

Day 1 Results: North European Sectional

A huge success for the CrossFit community in Scandinavia.

Games qualification are again underway overseas and the first to check in with a report is Joakim of CrossFit STHLM.

"It was an action packed first day of the North East Europe Sectional.

The sport of CrossFit is new in Scandinavia but most of the active competitors in CrossFit attended. The first workout was a triplet of double-unders, kettlebell thrusters and hanstand push-ups and tested the athletes skills as well as stamina, while the second workout, a chipper was true a test of work capacity and proved hard on all, a few competitors were unable to finished within the set time limit.

The day was a huge success for the CrossFit community in Scandinavia, and the spirit among competitors and spectators was great.

To make sure that standards where at the highest level, CrossFit STHLM brought in Hollis Molloy of CrossFit Santa Cruz, who made sure that everyone was held to the highest standards. The icing on the cake was that Mikko Salo the winner of the 2009 CrossFit Games attended and demonstrated the movement standards for each event.

After a hard day of work the athletes are now off to rest as day two promises to become even more intense as the competition continues."
