2017 Crossfit Invitational Results

The home team didn’t disappoint as the Pacific team took the title down under to the chants of “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!”  We knew with the combination of the Tia-Clair Tommey and Kara Webb would be a formidable force to be reckon with.  However the combination of Brent Fikowski and Patrick Vellner was as equally formidable for the Canadian team.  Sara Sigmundsdottir was ill earlier in the week and was unable to practice with the European team.  This proved costly during the synchronization movements.  Team USA came in with high expectations but fell short of bringing home the title.
