Questions:
  • How was your reaction when you found out that you had qualified for the Games?
Helga: I had no expectation to qualify but after day 2 I realized that I had a chance to go to the games.
Kyle: I jumped up and down like a little school girl when the final results were posted at regionals
Nicholas:  I felt so bad after the last chipper, but when I saw the final result, that feeling was replaced by extreme joy!! An experience for life.
  • How have you been training since the Regionals?
Helga: I have focused on my weakness and increased training intensity.
Kyle: Haven’t changed too much except that I’ve been doing 2-3 “crossfit” workouts each week. Mostly cause Ditte and Sarah made me.
Nicholas:  I have been focusing on my cardio a lot, been running and rowing like a paleo freak!! Hate it, but it’s so god damn efficient. And of course I’ve been doing crossfit workouts as well.
  • Do you have any ambitions in terms of placement?
Helga: No, I´m just going to do my best and have fun.
Kyle: My grandmother always told me, if it’s worth doing it’s worth winning.
Nicholas: I’m just so happy about qualifying, but when I’m standing on the battleground, I want to win.
  • Which kind of event do you hope to see?
Helga: I like chippers and wod´s with heavy weights and many reps.
Kyle: King Kong or some variation of really heavy lifting(but not gay shit like overhead squatting or snatching) and gymnastic movements like HSPU’s or muscle ups.
Nicholas: As technical as possible.
  • Who do you think will win the 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games?
Helga: This is going to be very tight this year but I hope it will be Annie
Kyle: Hopefully Canadians take both the womens and mens competition!!
Nicholas: Mikko, Annie and Team Butchers Garage 😛
