Pride and Gratitude – CrossFit Games Regional Qualifier Weekend
Written by C.J. Martin
It was an amazing weekend for the CrossFit Invictus crew at the CF Games Regional Qualifier in Tustin. We had a raucous support crew that brought some of the gym’s energy up to cheer on our fearless warriors – Frank Martinezcuello, Justin Nahama and Michele Vieux. Each of these three studs pushed themselves to the limit, never let up and represented CrossFit Invictus with class. Michele also ensured that Invictus will be well represented at the CrossFit Games in July. She took fifth overall in this weekend’s events and earned the right to compete in Aromas for the title of the “World’s Fittest Person.” We could not be more proud of Michele, Justin and Frank. (Check out the pics of them in action – badasses!)
I also want to thank the members of our crew who volunteered to judge the event – Mike Hom, Wayne Slavin and Chris & Nate Freischlag. Judging any competitive event is a thankless job, but these guys did everything they could to ensure that all of the competitors were held to same standards. Thank you all for sacrificing your weekend to help make the regional qualifier a great event.
