2010 CrossFit Games Finals

Before the Muscle-Ups

Quebec has a new hero

Shortly after the opening ceremonies of the 2010 CrossFit Games, the first heat of women entered the arena ready to tackle a tough couplet of muscle-ups and snatches. With the heats selected according to regional placing, the first group did not feature the top regional competitors, so no one could have predicted the performance they were about to see when Dave Castro said, “Go!”

Enter Camille Leblanc-Bazinet.

With a background in gymnastics, the 5’3” Leblanc-Bazinet might have been expected to be the first to knock out all the muscle-ups, but for her to string together nine in a row with a powerful kip was another thing entirely. She paired her ring work with squat snatches that were just 30 lb. shy of her body weight on her way to the second-best time of the event. 

Bazinet’s performance throughout the three-day, nine-event test of the world’s fittest played out much like that first event. Her gymnastics ability and overall consistency paid dividends by Games’ end, sending her back to Richelieu, Quebec, with a ninth-place finish.

Pre-Games, Pat Sherwood pulled the then-unknown Leblanc-Bazinet aside for an interview.

“Watch out for Canada,” she said in jest.
