First Throwdown of The London League
London League – Crossfit South London vs Reebok Crossfit Thames
On Saturday 28th September, CFSL had its first friendly competition with another box, Reebok Crossfit Thames.
The competition was a Team competition, with teams comprising of 2 guys and 1 girl. Thanks to Philly Brennan and Phil Morton for organising, Michael Price for programming the workouts and Gemma Bailey, Sal Fierro (and my good self) for running the event.
The day started with a pre competition speech explaining the rules and standards of the day and revealing the first workout for the day. The competition was open to ALL LEVELS and teams were mixed between scales and RX athletes. Athletes were instructed in the sport of Community and Competition, if you were able to RX any or All of the workouts then you should do so and only scale the elements you have to.
