Oregon/Idaho Sectional Final Results
The Oregon/Idaho sectional is a wrap and another 20 men and women move one step closer to the 2010 CrossFit Games. Athlete Nathan Loren finished out the day on the top of the podium not by securing a big win in one or two WODs, in fact Loren never finished first in any of the events, but also never finished out of the top 5. His balanced capacities eventually put him ahead of his opponents. Alicia Stanton on the other hand took home a big win on the rope climb couplet and was one of only 7 women to actually finish the second workout.

So do 20 females advance to the regionals even though they DNF a workout?

I can't believe Loren won - he looks like he's almost 40 or something. Does he have to get some tattoos before the regionals?

Way to go everyone! It was inspirational to watch the WODs today, and I hope I didn't piss off too many people when I didn't count their reps!

Why yes Mr Lappe. Nate does have to get a tatto before going to regionals. The more ink he has the better. I'm thinking a the words "LOREN" across his belly will really help ;).
Like JCore said, what a great way to spend a weekend. Thank you to all who supported and thank you all who pushed each other.

Congratulations to all the competitors this weekend, and thanks to the organizers and volunteers.
I want to make it known that myself, Marie Rochet, Becky Clark, Bryan Miller, Sam Harmer, and a couple of other competitors that I met at the event have been following the OPT blog programming in preparation for competition. James, and the OPT "Big Dawg" community is an amazingly effective resource; particularly for those training alone in preparation for competition.

Thanks Chris, all the support staff/judges and all the athletes for making this a great Sectional! There was a lot of blood sweat and tears on the ground by the end of the 3rd WOD. It was great to have the support from Crossfit Portland and of course everyone from Crossfit Fort Vancouver. I've only been a part of CFV for a few months but I feel like we're family. Adam Neiffer is king of programming, planning, motivation and nutrition! I only regret you not being able to participate so I could hand you the #1 shirt.
No Derek there will be no tatoos although the one across the stomach would be my first choice:)

Great job to all my Central Oregon peeps. You all did amazing, showing strongly in the top 20 for both men and Women. I also noticed some great performances by a few of the more "recreational" crossfitters. Truly inspiring! Great job to Garrett and Rob for battling back after you both struggled on WOD 1. Work out those kinks because Regionals won't be so forgiving. Garrett, try to not open a brewpub 2 weeks before your next competition. I think sleep is an important part of preparation. :-) Wild, you're a beast!

I just wanted to say thanks to Chris for putting on this event. And also give a big thanks to the judges and volunteers. I think it was a well run event and I was impressed at how smoothly so many athletes were moved through so many workouts without getting off schedule by too much.
I had a blast meeting all the talented athletes at the event. Looking forward to seeing many of the same faces at regionals.
Thanks to everyone who made this event possible.

Great event! Although I didn't participate (just a spectator), the adrenalin level was high! Big Props to my "son" Bill Pappas (finished 4th). With only a few months of crossfit training under his belt, I think we can expect BIG things from him in the future. Great to see such a high level of camaraderie -

Thanks to my volunteers and staff. I could've never done it without your hard work. The athletes and environment was awesome. Two of the funnest days of my life again.
Our photographers are working on editing the photos. I should have something posted Wednesday. I'll keep everyone posted.
Once again thanks to everyone who showed up and supported their athletes.

Congratulations and kudos to CrossFit H.E.L. Out of all of the boxes represented at this sectional qualifier, CrossFit H.E.L. athletes alone claimed FIVE of the 40 spots to the regionals (in addition to the two athletes that they already have eligible for regionals since they competed in the Games last year). Their reputation already preceded them, but once again, they have confirmed their place as perhaps the top gym in Portland/Vancouver AND Idaho.

For a gym that hasn't even had it's 1 year anniversary yet, Crossfit Fort Vancouver is very happy with 3 men qualifying in the top 11 and one woman qualifying in the top 10.
Nice job to all the gyms and competitors that were there. I would not go so far to say the results proved which gyms are top in the area.

I need to hear more about how awesome CrossFit Hel is. I can't wait for their next comment about it.
5 out of 40?
All my life, I thought 12.5% was pathetic.
Now I learn that it's worthy of self-promoting nonsense.
Will you guys come out with new shirts professing how 5 out of 40 is "Mutant-worthy?"
Is 12.5% more or less than the proportion of your members who can complete your programming prescribed? More or less than the proportion of your members that get injured every month?
Maybe it's just me, but if your membership can't do your work-outs prescribed, you've got the wrong prescription.

Here is a link to a homemade highlight video of myself doing the WOD's. Some of you guys will be able to see yourself working out in the background. I really enjoyed competing at the event and found everything from the event itself to the people there above par.

Apparently, "CrossFit Ego" doesn't know much about math. As far as I was taught "all my life", 12.5% is more than 10% (4 out of 40), 7.5% (3 out of 40), etc. These are the numbers that some of the other gyms moved on to Regionals, apparently with the exception of Oregon CrossFit. (KUDOS to Oregon CrossFit, by the way. AWESOME performances!) So, when a handful of tenacious athletes from a given box advance to the Regionals, I think that speaks to the success, attitude, and zeal exhibited by them. What is even more noteworthy though, is the humble demeanor exhibited by ALL of these competitors. I have yet to see any "self-promoting" or talk of doing anything "mutant-worthy" from anyone at CrossFit HEL. Yes, I HAVE done a few WODS at HEL, with those athletes, so I can speak knowledgeably about them. Anyway, I have NO IDEA where you have come up with the idea that there have been any "injuries" at HEL, as that is simply bogus smack-talking (as the rest of your comments are). Furthermore, I'm sure that EVERYONE at your gym completes the WODS as prescribed, so what does that say about your programming? Way to set the bar low enough to that EVERYONE can reach it. How about setting the bar high enough that people have to work their ass off, and sometimes MODIFY, so that they can make the gains to eventually do that WOD as prescribed? For example, when doing "Fight Gone Bad", try making the wall ball mark at 10 feet, as opposed to 8 feet, like EVERYONE else does it. Who would possibly want to do even MORE work in "Fight Gone Bad"? HEL does.
So, "CrossFit Ego"... I understand why you would talk so much s*@t that you've halitosis... When you're on top, everyone wants to bring you down. Maybe you should put less energy into being a hater, and more energy into your easily attainable, prescribed WOD's. Seriously, if there was a town called "Dumberthanf**k", you would most certainly be the mayor. So, enjoy your membership at CrossFit Vagina. And remember, some of us are CrossFitters... Others just show up and wear the T-shirts.

No offense taken to your "CrossFit Vagina" comment. In case you were concerned...

Mindy, I wasn't "concerned". CrossFit is not for the physically, mentally, or EMOTIONALLY weak, and neither is the CrossFit blog. So, consider programming some intestinal fortitude into your WOD's.

So AMRAP sexist comments from Neanderthal douchebags should be a key part of WODs? Good to know, I'll make sure to add that in.

I always find it a little bit humorous when someone tires to insult another person, when they're really only making themself out to be an ignorant, self-absorbed douchebag. But thank you, Cletis. Really, thank you, for making my day just a little bit better by allowing me to laugh at your expense.

Cletis, thanks for the math lesson. Part over the whole. Fractions are fun!
If 8 foot wall balls are good, and 10 foot wall balls are better, what about 50 foot wall balls? Sounds pretty elite. I learned it from watching you!
And wait, the blog--the web site--isn't for the physically weak? What does that even mean?
