Sebastian Lade competed in the raw 3-lift category and claimed the top spot earning the title of Provincial Champion. Lade is one of the most composed and adaptable lifters I've ever seen on the platform. The last flight of lifters were two hours behind schedule and the final deadlift didn't take place until 10:00pm. Needless to say it was a long day with many organizational delays. Given all those factors, Lade didn't complain once, and it was business as usual as he executed a perfect nine-for-nine day, achieving personal bests across the board.
Christina Verhagen, had an absolutely grueling weekend competing at the Crossfit Regionals. The competition spanned over three days, hosting seven events that tested all aspects of human performance. For a full list of the events, click HERE. Through blood, sweat, and determination, Verhagen placed 16th in the Canada West region. Over the past year, I've seen a maturation in Verhagen's composure during competition. She is more relaxed and poised, and when the time comes to perform, she turns into an absolute beast. Big things are happening in this girl's future.
