Day 1 Results: New England Sectional - Plus Final Workout Announced
Heather Bergeron and Ben Bergeron are in the lead.
Day 1 of the New England Sectional is in the rearview mirror and was a total success. The athletes are now prepping for day 2 with a look at the final workout that lies ahead of them. The following words are from Jason Leydon of CrossFit Milford.
"The first day went amazing, the athletes laid it all on the line for the first two workouts. The day ran extremely smooth and the spectacle of their athletic performance was nothing short of amazing. Heather Bergeron who was in the Games last year is sitting in first place for the women with Sara Scholl right behind her in second and Lisa Mikkelsen in third place. For the men Ben Bergeron is in first place followed by Derek Mohamed and Eric Magee (2 and 3rd). There were some spectacular times in the workouts, and people left saying these were some of the hardest workouts they'd ever done, and they were grateful for the simplicity and elegance of the programming."

Great job Jason, CrossFit Milford, and all the New England athletes competing! There is something to be said about "elegance" of the workouts. Simple yet challenging, and still true measures of CrossFit.

This was a very well orchestrated event and a true pleasure to be a part of (as a spectator). It's no surprise that Jason and his crew have the reputation they do and as many members who train at CF Milford. Pat on the back to the judges and volunteers as well. Another great display of the great power our community.

Great plan and outstanding execution. I enjoyed the entire thing -- as a member of CFHQ staff and as the owner of CrossFit Watertown with an athlete in the competition. Big thanks to Jason and the entire CrossFit Milford gang, the judges, all of the other volunteers, and the New England affiliates. Just plain awesome.
