We are very excited about the 2014 European Regionals going down this weekend in Copenhagen, Denmark. This year, we’ll se a lot of new athletes and the competition will undoubtably be fierce!
Interestingly, a lot of athletes declined their invitation to the individual competition this year. As stated in this article on games.crossfit.com, a total of 18 top competitors declined their spots this year. Many of them have chosen to compete in the team division instead. Since this is the first Regional competition to feature all 6 team members in all events, the stress on the teams is greater than ever before. It will be interesting to see how the flux of talented athletes into the team competition will influence the overall placement of teams.

Furthermore, we’ll see some new skills that have never been tested at a Regional setting before:
– Strict hand-stand pushups for all team members
– Hand-stand walk for all team members

Looking forward to a great weekend! – Sarah & Ditte
