Swiss Team Challenge

This weekend saw the return of the Swiss Team Challenge for 2019. Transformance CrossFit Horgen hosted 4 teams from a combination of our Horgen / Meilen members to take on three events throughout the day challenging every aspect of their fitness. The event was a great opportunity to join our two communities and come together to push our limits and achieve some PRs and ‘firsts’ during the course of the day.

In particular, I would like to congratulate the following people / teams:

  • ‘Meilen Mafia’ who were able to achieve the amazing result of coming 16th overall in Switzerland in the Rookie Category out of a total of 158 teams!
  • ‘Run like the Winded’ who were able to complete all of the workouts with only 3 members in their team (as opposed to 4). They came together as a team and worked extremely hard for each other to push through their disadvantage and achieve some great results.
  • Jan Senn (90kg), Michael Gutknecht (90kg) & Philipp Graeve (80kg) for achieving PRs in their Clean & Jerk. Even more amazing was that Michael almost did a strict press during his lift!
  • Philip Graeve who was able to string together consecutive reps of muscle-ups for the first time!
  • Nelson Millan for doing his first ever Pistol Squat.

Also a very big thank you to our volunteers, Alex, Thomas and Kim who helped to judge and photograph the day. Your time and support was very much appreciated.
