ELFIT competition

The truth always lies within the results. ⁣I started doing CrossFit in 2013. I started watching the CrossFit Games and got hooked. ⁣I loved the competition. It looked like so much fun. ⁣After learning the movements and working out with a group of guys, I said, “I’d love to have the chance to just become a regional athlete.”⁣ 

I started out weighing about 140 pounds soaking wet. ⁣I was super small, thin, weak, snatching 75 lbs and thinking it was something. ⁣All that aside, I still thought it would be cool to be labeled as a Regional Athlete. ⁣

Time goes by, and the CrossFit Games decide to change the format. ⁣They did away with regionals all together. ⁣CrossFit created a format that now forces you to an event called, “Sanctionals”. ⁣I told myself, it would be awesome to be considered a Sanctional Athlete and look at the big picture and say, wow! I’m only one step away from becoming a Games Athlete. How Surreal. 

Times go on and failed attempt after failed attempt happened. ⁣I never gave up on achieving it. The past year(s), I have signed up for every Sanctional, giving myself at the very least, an opportunity. I finally got that email I have been wishing for........7 YEAR LATER. On February 26, 2020, I received an email stating. “Congratulations, your hard work has paid off and you have earned your spot to compete at the ELFIT CROSSFIT CHAMPIONSHIP 2020 in the MENS ELITE DIVISION!”⁣ I lost it in pure excitement. ⁣⁣So many people to thank! I wouldn’t be here without my family, my friends, my fellow athletes, programming, and 1st phorm.  

Moral of the story, NEVER GIVE UP. The ELFIT competition is in Cairo, Egypt. I am asking for any donations to get me there. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. This is a large step in me being a Sanctional athlete and one step closer to becoming a Games athlete. Next stop, Cairo. ELFIT
