- How was your reaction when you found out that you had qualified for the Games?
We were very happy when we found out we had qualified for the games. Just after WOD 2 we lost lots of points but we never gave up.
- How have you been training since the Regionals?
As a team we have been doing team workouts twice a week. We also try to focus on each other strengths and weaknesses to maximize our outcome. We also work on getting to know each other better. The other days we work on our intensity, strength and preparing for the unknown.
- Do you have any ambitions in terms of placement?
Not really, we are hoping to do our absolute best and hoping for a good result. At the same time we want to enjoy competing and having fun. We as a team are honored to compete at the Reebok Crossfit games 2011.
- Which kind of event do you hope to see?
We are ready for anything, but we are good as a team in exercise with endurance and lots of repetitions, also it would be nice to see swimming WOD for the first time at the games.
- Who do you think will win the 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games?
Annie should win this games, she really deserve it as well as has worked for it.
