CrossFit Empower’s CanWest Games team roster doubled in size this week as both our scaled teams received their invites to the 2019 CanWest Games!

Congratulations are in order for Team Barbell Ninjas (Sprite, Gymkata & The Nuke) and Team 3 Decades (Boomer, Tamahock & HeeHee) who put in  big efforts to earn their qualifying spots.

The teams will join our individual masters athletes Silk (women 45-49), Super Mario (men 45-49), Sandman (men 45-49), WOD Father (men 45-49), Colossus (men 50-54) & Motor (women 50-54).  3 time CanWest Games podium finisher (2016, 2017, 2018) Mr. Fantastic also earned an invitation to the Games but had to decline due to injury and has offered instead to support our athletes as team manager.

Our athletes now have 2 full months of training as they prepare for competition.  For Motor, Super Mario and our two teams it will be their first CanWest Games experience and it will be Colossus’ first time competing at the Games as an individual.  We hope many Empower members will come out to support us!

The CanWest Games take place the weekend of July 26th, 27th & 28th at Percy Perry Stadium in Coquitlam.  It is a great venue featuring exciting events and athletes of every level.  Come check it out this year and come compete alongside us next year.
