The CCW Winter Throwdown 2022

The CCW Winter Throwdown 2022

Saturday the 16th July 2022


It’s always a challenge to put this on so we hope you all enjoyed it?! This is the 9th consecutive year we have put this on making it the longest running CrossFit event in Wellington. 2023 should be good for the 10 year anniversary!

Congrats to all of our athletes that lined up on the floor, you guys were amazing. Comps like this have a funny way of helping you do things you never thought possible and we hope some of you found moments within this comp.

Congrats to all of our winners, first placed ‘The Brutes’ of Luke and Emma from Instinct, Second placed ‘Team Taurus GnA’ of Gilly and Alyssa from Taurus and third place ‘PAC Wolves’ of Hannah and Jerome from CrossFit Porirua/PAC Fitness, we hope you enjoy your Fôrs prize pack and Trophies. Overall though, the competition leader board showed the quality of teams all the way down the table because it was TIGHT and it chopped and changed throughout the day.

It takes an army of helpers to get these thing off the ground so a big thank you needs to go out to all of our volunteers. Our on to it resetting team of Tamsin, Rob, Adam, Toni, Nick and Ash. Our keen eyed judges of Pauline, Jess, Patyne, Louise, Zak, Sarah, Jess, Sean, Jono, Tyson, Derek, Sam and Alice you guys absolutely nailed it today. As always, privileged to have Nathan on board behind the lense, can’t wait to see the images?! Thanks to Freyja and the team at Fôrs for the prize packs and sponsoring the event! The scoring team of Eric and Monika were a cut above as always negating issues with ease.

The biggest thanks however needs to go to the power group of Ben (Chief Marshall), Sovita (Head Judge) and the tried and tested combination of Jonnie (logistics) and Graeme (resetting chief), you guys were ON all day and you all outdid yourselves!

If I forgot anyone I apologise.

It feels good to prep comps like this and run them, but it always feels the best to sit back and just reflect on the awesome day.

Thanks for another memorable day in the gym!

Don’t forget this was also a Charity Event (both the in-house and the winter throwdowns) and we managed to raise $1710 already for our chosen charity PARS, People at risk Solutions.

Thanks again to everybody that got behind this event.

See you next year! Bigger and better.
