Before I continue my 3 part series about my trip with MGZ, I have a nice little update on my previous post, Playing The Leaderboard. At the end of the five week online qualifier, the CrossFit Open, I finished in 8th place in the Asia Region.
My score was not solidified until I sent in the requested video. I sat anxiously until I was told it was accepted and I received my invite to the CrossFit Games Pacific Regionals. I will compete in Wollongong, Australia the weekend of May 13th. In addition to my advancement to Regionals, I was also named the “Fittest Female in the Philippines.” I will receive a certificate and shirt…well maybe, last year people just got a certificate, womp womp.
I am very excited to compete in Australia, unfortunately, athletes must pay for the travel, hotel, and entrance fee for the event, so I’ve started a Go Fund Me. To my surprise, I was able to raise almost my entire goal in 24 hours, but haven’t had much movement since. If I reach my goal, I plan on increasing it to raise money to fly a coach in with me. It would be sad and lonely to be in the athletes area without a coach.
