First, lets start with this weekend. In doing so, lets first start with the biggest congratulations and thank you of all. I am sure I speak for both teams when i say “THANK YOU” to all the 215ers who came out to support. That was one of largest groups we have ever had support our people at an event and certainly larger than any other community there, possibly including the home gym if you don’t count those there who worked and competed. It was such a great feeling to have such a high power of the 215 family there at every awesome turn, and there were many.
A bunch of the athletes there PRed their cleans and all twelve athletes did everything asked of them and some. One of our teams took third and the other team took ninth. Our team that took third was a close runner up and second runner up to two very high level teams, both regional level. I felt both teams operated at their maximal potential and their places of third and ninth were not due to any mistakes on their parts, there was just a very high caliber of competitors at Summer Slam. I was very proud of both teams as should you be of how they represented the 215. While one of our teams performed as expected – awesome job Maya, Erica, Erin, Zach, Kevin & Jeff – our “other” team far exceeded my expectations. For a group who has never competed with one another and most have never competed at all, there was not much more i could have asked of them. They were relentless. You guys were a pleasure to watch. Congrats Julie, Roger, AMA, Perrin, Chandler and Dave for an outstanding performance.
