Well thanks to all who participated and came down to cheer along for another great year #intheopen
As per usual there was a heap of PBs and people doing stuff they thought they couldn't. A big pat on the back to the people who dived in. It's scary putting yourself out there, vulnerable and out of your comfort zone, but that's where we make big changes and get that personal growth. You will never reach your true potential without having a go!
Faction Carnival results:
The 5th week scores were:
There's been a lot of great teams in the history of sport, but this team black was right up there. A flawless display going 5 from 5. Selflessness, cohesion, sacrifice and the greater good were their core values.
The Black Team Members were:
Grace Allen, Chris Blenkinsop, Hannah Brown, Emma D'ambrosio, Nadine Gyllhamn, Jennifer Hunter, Chantel Momberg, Ryan Baker, Mitch Bell, Michael Brooks, Dan D'Ambrosio, Marc Fischer, Quentin Lenormand, Ervin Ng, Issac Rasmussen, Lane Sanderson, Sean Sweeney, Jason Walker
Following up from Team Blue's win last year, these will be the crew looking to make it 3 seasons in a row. You can consider yourself the elite of the elite and you now have permission to take other peoples barbells, rowers etc. If someone is on your favourite pull up bar, it's now yours.
It came down to the final week where it was all tied up, but congrats to Team White who took out second plate.
I think as an Affiliate we really had some great high end results too for some of the crew that really put some pretty heavy work in on a regular basis. For the guys we we had 7 of the top 42 and the girls 3 on the top 50 which is pretty impressive considering WA has 50 odd affiliates.
Well done to our award winners
