BEST IN THE WEST 2018
In December 2018 Crossfit Uplift hosted the 5th annual Best in the West throwdown.
The Best in the West is a coming together of the Five most elite CrossFit teams from across the Central West to battle it out for the title of BEST IN THE WEST.
This year the teams competing were from: Lithgow (Uplift), Bathurst (2795), Dubbo (CrossFit Dubbo), Orange (Homefront) and the Mountains (Dougie).
The home team CrossFit Uplift were victorious in 2014, 2015 and 2016, In 2017 the title went to the amazing CrossFit 2795 (Bathurst) team and in 2018 the trophy returned home with Uplift just piping CrossFit Dubbo and 2795 in the final.
The Best in the West competition has teams compete in strategic athletics racing. Two 6-person teams (3 men, 3 women) go head to head in each round of events, culminating in a grand final between the two top scoring teams on the day. Events are easy to follow and are played with pre-set rules and standards. Teams are generally made up of athletes with a variety of strengths to suit the three facets of CrossFit; gymnastics, cardio endurance and weight lifting. The format is designed to force teams to strategise. It is an exciting, spectator friendly event.
Thank you everyone for coming. It's great to get together with all of you guys, it is definitely our highlight of the year. Looking forward to seeing you all next year and watch how everyone has excelled!
