With all the craziness that has been going on lately, the CrossFit Games Master’s Qualifiers has been over-shadowed with lots of doom & gloom. However, our very ow Briana Gaipa, a.k.a. Coach Bri, a.k.a. Breezy, has earned a spot to the CrossFit Games by securing her spot as the 6th Fittest Female age 35-39… in the world! With only 10 females in each age group going to the CrossFit Games Bri will be competing alongside CrossFit “o.g.” Becca Voigt, and another CrossFit Games veteran, Anna Tobias! Last weekend Bri spent 4 days down in San Diego doing the Online Qualifier workouts with other masters athletes from CrossFit Invictus. She had 6 workouts in 4 days with her best finish being 3rd in the world for her age group in a workout that was 100 Dumbbell Snatches 50lbs., 50 Calorie Row and 100 Bar Facing Burpees, which she finished in a ridiculously fast 12:56! This was a pretty clear indicator that Bri has not only been working her butt off since last year, but also, specifically attacking her weaknesses!
I can only try to imagine the challenges of now training for the CrossFit Games in isolation, but also with the uncertainty of when the Games will take place or what they make look like given the current situation with Covid-19. However, that doesn’t change the fact that we are extremely proud and impressed by what Bri has already done.
