The CrossFit Open is eagerly anticipated every year among the CrossFit community and the 2019 Open certainly didn’t disappoint at CrossFit Leyland. The atmosphere was electric, the support amazing and the sights of members pushing themselves beyond their perceived limits, in order to achieve new personal records was unforgettable. Each year the CFL staff have the unenviable task of narrowing down a long list of candidates to receive our annual open awards; the CFL ‘Progress Award’ and the CFL ‘Spirit of the Open Award’.
This year we sat on the proverbial fence, selecting two members to receive the CFL Progress Award. Jools Jennings and Su Quirk were the deserved winners, having devoted lots of time this year to developing their skills and fitness. The CFL Spirit of the Open award was a no brainer this year, Sharon Tsang only joined CFL relatively recently, but has fully immersed herself into the community spirit. We asked each of the award winners a few questions about their CrossFit journey.
