CrossFit Queens - Road to the Games

The CrossFit Queens team led by veteran CF Games Team athlete David Charbonneau, and is rounded out by rookies Deanna Gibaldi, Nicole Rinaldi, Morgan Pitcher, Ben Swedish and Brian Fink. Team Queens initially just wanted to make it to the Regionals floor, and by the time the Regional competition in Albany was over, they had punched their tickets to the Games!

This rag-tag group of athletes from NYC has gone from the underdogs, to a force to be reckoned with. They shocked the CrossFit world with their 4th Place finish at regionals and securing their spot at the Games! They now set their eyes on Madison, Wisconsin, and their trip on July 31-August 7th.

The team needs your SUPPORT. CrossFit does not help in the aid to get to The Games. Things such as travel, food, accommodations, training gear, etc. are all expected to come out of pocket & the team cannot afford to pay for it all. The team would graciously appreciate any support you could give to help them make their trip to Madison!

They can't wait to show what they can do at The Games and apprecieate all your support in helping them get there!
