Month: April 2012

Congrats to our coaches on great performances at regionals!

Lindsey Ingram finished 15th overall and took fourth in the dumbbell-snatch/sprint workout.

Crystal Kirby-Peloquin was 18th and had top-15 finishes in four of six events.

We can’t take credit for Tyson Takasaki, who’s a product of Reed MacKenzie’s CrossFit Taranis in Victoria, but we’ve been honored to have Tyson at our facility and on our coaching staff. He was great as always and finished sixth overall, with a second- and a third-place finish in events contested by Western Canada’s top athletes.

And congratulations to all the athletes who competed this weekend! It was great to see all of you and be a part of the community. You guys inspire us every time we see you–and we’re stealing all your good ideas for CrossFit 204!

Big congrats to special people Angie Pye, Heather Gillespie and Emily Beers! Our strong Canada West women are amazing to watch, and it’s great to have such friendly competitors leading the charge in our country.

Congrats also to big Jeremy Meredith, Lucas Parker and Steve Howell on their top finishes. It’s time for a CanWest man to crack the top 10 in California!

And finally, best wishes to the CrossFit Fraser Valley Centaurs, and the CrossFit Taranis crew, whose team spirit is a model for everyone else.

Good luck to all at the 2012 CrossFit Games!

From April 27-29, coaches Crystal, Lindsey, Tyson and Mike will be at the CrossFit Games Canada West Regional in Vancouver, B.C.

Lindsey, Crystal and Tyson have earned the right to compete against some of the best CrossFit athletes in the country, and we’re unbelievably proud of their accomplishments in the CrossFit Open. Crystal was 54th, Lindsey was 23rd, and Tyson was second in the Open, and last year Tyson was third overall at the CanWest Regional. He went on to compete for his home gym, CrossFit Taranis, and won a bronze medal in the Affiliate Cup of the 2011 CrossFit Games.

Mike will be writing updates for the CrossFit Games site, and you’ll be able to watch videos and follow the action via a live scoring system.
