North European Sectionals – athlete wrap-up by Asger Frøsig Sørensen, CrossFit Copenhagen

My top 5

1 word to describe the Sectionals in Stockholm

Amazing!

2 things I would have done different

1) Kept my hands on the f…… deadlift bar!
2) Going more all out on the last WOD!

3 wishes for the Regionals

1) Same group of atlets from Denmark.. ‘Cause.. what an awesome crew
2) NO SDHP 🙂
3) Same intensity level as at the sectionals!

4 nice things about the Sectionals

1) Great people there, both atlets and spectators. All the new people you meet are friendly and share your passion for CrossFit. 
2) The last sprint on the burpees by Uffe, which meant that he made it under the time cap, by 1 sec. Really amazing effort!
3) The thing that even though everybody is competing, you still see atletes helping each other with little advice on technique etc. before workouts!
4) The Danes’ overall performance!

5 things that I’ve learned from this experience

1) Don’t be that nervous before the first workout
2) Stay cool under the work-out and don’t forget the rules of the movements!!!!
3) Don’t be intimidated by the big and muscled opponents, they are more scared of you, than you are of them!
4) Believing in your own abilities will get you further than you imagine!
5) Allways stay positive and optimistic!!… Like Martin Møller 🙂
 
Asger finished 8th!

North European Sectionals – athlete wrap-up by Uffe T. Sørensen, CrossFit Butcher’s Lab

“Earthquaking” (maby not an official recognized word but it works for me).

2 things I would have done different

1) Stopped eating all that cake in time.

2) Started my deadlift on 200kg and thereby been a lot smarter.

3 wishes for the Regionals

1) That the cammaraderie among crossfitters will be the same as at the Sectional in Stockholm.

2) That one of the Danish guys will continue to the CrossFit Games.

3) That the wold press will be there to film, take pictures and write about this fantastic way of compeeting.

4 nice things about the Sectionals

1) The voulunteeres that were there and made it possible.

2) The spectators and their support for all the athletes.

3) That the Champ himself showed up.

4) The Danish CrossFit delegation of compettitors and supporters and our friendship.

5 things that I’ve learned from this experience

1) Strenght isn’t everything. I knew that before, but if you really want to be crossfit you need to find a fine balance between strenght and cardio, and then train what you suck at. The guys in top 5 proves that.

2) If you have never been to at competition in CrossFit – GO!!! It will rock your world and make you want more.

3) As a coach I will focus even harder on the athletes’ form. I don’t think 80% is good enough anymore. They may hate me for that for some time, but in competition they will see the results and hopefully forgive the shouting.

4) Look at other athletes, see their game plan in the WOD and learn from them and about them.

5) Free your mind – and your squat will follow.

Uffe finished 16th!
