On Sunday September 15, athletes from around the country participated in the 2013 Progenex Caffeine & Kilos Invitational. This event featured a weight lifting meet with the largest cash prize in U.S. history and a CrossFit competition with Rx, Scaled and Masters Divisions. 300+ competitors, 12 vendors and over 1,000 people were in attendance.
The weight lifting competition had 18 c...ompetitors; 8 men and 10 women. Many of these lifters are the best in the country, they have international competition experience and one of them; Chioma Amaechi, is going to Poland in 6 weeks to compete in the world championships. “Best meet ever in the Pacific Weight Lifting Association” – said Kevin Doherty. Amaechi took first place for women followed by Jenny Lam and Haillee Loller. On the men’s side, Ian Wilson set an American record with a 165 kilo snatch and he went on to take the men’s title. D’Angelo Ossario finished in second as he set a Jr. National Record with a 195 kilo (429 pounds) clean and jerk. Rob Blackwell from California Strength finished in 3rd. Future Energy Savers awarded these six athletes with 7,000 dollars in prize money.
The CrossFit competition tested athlete’s strength, conditioning and mental toughness to get through each workout. There were 70 teams competing in the 3 divisions. In the Rx division, CrossFit CSA took the title followed by Team Lifeworx and CrossFit East Sacramento. The Scaled division podium had Lalanne Fitness on top with CrossFit Solano in second and CrossFit Iron Mile in third. The top 3 teams in the Masters Division were Team ProAnox, WarriorZ CrossFit and CrossFit Oakdale.
All we wanted was people to have a good time and we hope that everyone did! Thank you from all of us at C&K and remember we are all just one big family!
