CARSON, Calif. - After two days of competition at the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games, Tallahassee's Colleen Fahey has proven herself as one of the top athletes there.
Through four events in the Masters Women 50-54 division, Fahey is the only competitor to finish in the top five in every event. She'll enter Thursday's final two workouts in first place.
Wednesday's first workout was called "Pullgatory". Athletes raced through sholder-to-overhead presses, sled pulls, burpees, and sumo dead lift high-pulls, finishing between 13 minutes and 20 minutes. Fahey came in fifth place in Pullgatory with a time of 15:12.
The second workout of the day was much shorter, but still intense, this time focusing on the legs through a combination of dead lifts and box jumps. Fahey finished the workout in 3:36, good enough for third place.
After today's second workout, the field of 18 in the Masters Women 50-54 division was cut down to 12. Those 12 will go through the final two workouts of the games tomorrow.
