Open Update and Pop Up Shop


Hey all, we are past the "hump week" of the 2017 Open, and you all have put in so many amazing performances. All of the coaches are so proud of your achievements, from people's first Open WOD to hitting PR's in snatches this past week. I'm sure there will be many more memorable moments before the 2017 Open is finished.

As of this week, Vic City Black leads the whole region, which is pretty amazing given the strength of the competition. It will be very tough to maintain that spot, but our athletes on that team seem to be just hitting their stride.

Vic City Green sits in 38th place (out of over 100 teams!), testament to the depth and quality of the athletes that we have at our gym. It's pretty amazing to see VC Green beating the majority of affiliates in the Region, and great to see who is contributing to the team scores each week.

For our Master's competitors, we have several competitors in the top 20. On the women's side, Tracey Woiwod is in 9th, and Gail Cort is in 2nd in our Region. For the men, Mark Woiwod is in 14th and Scott Harlow in 16th in Canada West. This is not to mention several other Master's athletes who are crushing it across the board.

Keep it up gang, with every rep, pound, and second saved, you are doing our gym and community so proud.
