Chatting with some of SoCal's toughest.
There’s no rest for the wicked, or so goes the saying.
Just one week after the 2010 CrossFit Games, competitors Kristan Clever (first), Valerie MacKenzie Voboril (third) and Rebecca Voigt (seventh) are back in the gym to decompress and look toward the future.
Clever came out of the event on top of the podium. With five first-place finishes throughout the weekend, Clever clearly did her homework and put in the time heading into this year’s event. Her consistency throughout the weekend kept her up front, and her cheerful disposition and amazing athleticism make her a crowd favorite.
Voboril and Voigt are both familiar faces as well. Voboril may have crossed the line 10th in the first event of the 2009 Games, but a disastrous combination of antihistamines and the heat of Northern California left her reeling, ultimately causing her to withdraw. Voigt just barely missed the Day 2 cut in ’09, coming away from the weekend with a 20th-place finish. Both have since redeemed their efforts and are happy to have done so well this year.
