What happened at the East Regional?
The East is always exciting with outstanding competitors.
Everyone was excited to see post East Regional, who would take the top spot on the leaderboard out of Mat Fraser and Pat Vellner.
Katrin Davidsdottir chipped away and worked hard to break Event 2 and Event 4 records. She won five out of six events, coming first place in Events 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6. She was unbeatably the shining star and champion of the weekend and the East.
Craig Kenney took first place in Event 1 and Tim Paulson, Games veteran took first place in Event 3 gaining them both 100 points on the leaderboard.
Kari Pearce had an awesome Event 3 record of 8:59, beating it by an enormous 52 seconds.
Patrick Vellner glided across the box in Event 5 to win his first event of the weekend, which would help solidify his first place on the podium.
Invictus Boston put on an amazing performance all weekend taking 1st place in Event 2, 5 & 6 and on the podium.
This would of been East Woodbridge’s 2nd CrossFit Games appearance, however in light of recent drug testing, they will not be competing at the Games this year due to disqualification for Laura Hosier being in breach of the CrossFit drug policy. This means Team CrossFit Queens will take the last qualifying spot to the 2018 CrossFit Games now that East Woodbridge has been disqualified from the Games.
The East certainly did not disappoint.
