Team Synergy arrived early at the Richmond Olympic Oval well rested and mentally ready for day 1 of the Canada West Regionals. Jason, Matt, Vanessa and Laurie got the team off to a good start with a very solid performance on WOD 1 finishing a strong 5th. Team Taranis set a torid pace and was the only team to finish WOD 1 in under 5 minutes. The remaining teams in the top five all finished within 15 seconds of each other highlighting the parity of the teams competing in this year’s Canada West Regional.
After resting and getting refueled it was on to WOD 2 for Team Synergy. Chad, Matt, Val and Laurie were ready for this WOD and nailed it to finish the workout in 2nd place a slim 15 seconds behind CrossFit Fraser Valley. Synergy Strength and CF Fraser Valley showed their strength by being the only teams to finish under 19 minutes with the next closest team completing the WOD in just over 21 minutes.
At the end of Day 1, Team Synergy sits in in 3rd place with only 1 point separating the top 3 teams…emphasizing the high calibre of competition.
