What a brilliant weekend of friendly, competitive exercise here at FORM Leeds. We had two days of team events: Scaled on Saturday and RX on Sunday. Great to see some previously 'Scaled' athletes really jumping out of their comfort zone and holding their own in the RX. But just as good to see lots (and lots) of new faces in the Scaled event too.
These events are always exciting for us to run but this was a little scary for us too with the shear number of athletes on the dance floor, but all went pretty much to plan.
Before you scroll to the results we'd like to once again thank all those who are involved. The athletes for bringing your energy, the staff for their time and probably most of all the volunteers, without whom there wouldn't be an event. Oh, and DJs Dresner and Dunphy who kept the place jumping all weekend. ♡♡♡
So here are the results!
In the Scaled the 5 that made it into the final were Bacon & Leggs, 4 The Long Jump, Kippin' it Real, Changing Lanes and Twerk It 'n' Jerk It. As we have in the past we gave a time advantage in seconds based on the points separating each team.
But as we know that doesn't mean that whoever finishes top after the Heats will be the victors in the end - you have to be smart to win our finals!
In the end 4 The Long Jump came through and took to top spot. Well done Lisa, Louise, Chris and James!
Onto Sunday and the RX Event.....
Again, finishing top spot doesn't mean it's going to be an easy ride for the final. The top teams in the 5 final spots were Team Train, GritStone CrossFit Black, Baldilocks and his Three Hairs, Swole Sisters and Team Kitbox, who unfortunately had to leave at the end of the heats to get back to work. In stepped the ever-willing Team Red Sky to take the free sport in the final.
Same as in the Scaled final the day before, the top team gets a time advantage (in seconds) calculated on the points difference. But also as yesterday, our finals can be the Great Leveler when it comes to who will take the top podium. Gritstone showed their pedigree but FORM's own Baldilocks and his Three Hairs showed that consistency is key throughout - moving up a spot from the end of the heats to take second place. Team Train had to settle for 3rd after finishing top but pretty sure it'l' give them all the inspiration they'll need for the next one....
So a massive 'well done' to Rich, Charlie, Hat and Jordan. Well deserved!
Loved this event or missed out? Nobody panic!
