The CrossFit Open- That’s a Wrap so What’s Next?

SLC CrossFit is extremely proud of all the athletes that participated in this year’s CrossFit Open. Seeing our community come together at events such as this is nothing short of amazing. After all of the participants poured their blood, sweat and tears (literally!) into each workout, the results have been finalized and the invitations have been sent out. We have four athletes advancing to the next stage of the game!

Justin Dickson made it to the final Games qualification round for the Master’s division. He completed four workouts in four days and gave it all he had, but didn’t quite make the top 20 he needed to get the invite to the Games. Out of the 200 men worldwide invited to participate Justin came in 30th which is pretty damn good! After a brief interview, we asked Justin what he planned to do next, his response… “I am going to Disneyland!”

Cassidy Duffield, Ashley Shaeffer and Dana Howell have all qualified as individuals and will be going to regionals in Dallas, TX on May 13th-15th. We are so proud to have them represent us so if you see them around the gym be sure to wish them luck!

Liz Glenn will also be representing SLC! She qualified in the teenage division (14-15 age group) in the Open and is headed straight to the Games in Carson, CA in July. Show ’em how it’s done Liz!

Great work to every one who participated in the Open. Until next year, let’s cheer on our ladies at regionals and the Games!
