The three Regionals that happened this past weekend had us on the edge of our seats!

I cannot wait to go up to Portland to watch Joey, Hayley, and all the other athletes from the West Super Region compete!

First a little Pacific Region recap:

Pacific Regional


Men:
1. Rob Forte
2. James Newbury
3. Khan Porter
4. Zeke Grove
5. Mitchell Sinnamon

Women:
1. Kara Webb
2. Tia-Clair Toomey
3. Alethea Boon
4. Justine Beath
5. Madeline Sturt

 

The highlight of this Regional was definitely Khan Porter clenching a qualifying spot during the last workout. Khan was sitting outside the top 5 qualifying spots going into the last workout and he put in some serious work to win the last event and qualify. It was a hell of a race between him and Zeke Grove, Grove got a no-rep and Khan ran away with it. I would suggest looking it up and watching the re-run.

 My favorite moment form the Pacific, Khan killing the last event and making it to the games.

For the ladies, Kara Webb pretty much just crushed everything, she finished the snatch event more than a minute faster than any other women from any Region that went this weekend. But Tia-Clair Toomey, who got second at the games last year, finally actually gave Kara some competition. Another highlight was Alethea Boon crushing the strict muscle-ups in Regionals Nate and getting the closest out of all the women this weekend to completing it!
