As the Games media staff put it… “CrossFit Wilmington put on a Snatch Clinic”. Due to a shoulder injury, CrossFit Wilmington had only 5 of our 6 team members participating in the Snatch Ladder WOD. Yes, our total beat all but one team with only 5 lifters to their 6!
Olympic Lifting is difficult to execute as an athlete and takes much practice. Olympic Lifting is even more difficult to coach. CFW takes pride in our attention and dedication to the Olympic style lifts. Many CrossFit coaches believe a snatch workout or two a month will suffice. Not when you’re lifting next to our crew.
Strong and powerful athletes can do “sexy Metcons”. Metcon lovers can’t do strength.
