Swiss Team CHallenge 2018 @ CrossFit Basel

(English version below)

SUN’S OUT, GUNS OUT! Es ist wieder Zeit für unsere grosse Team CHallenge!

Am Samstag, 30. Juni 2018 findet zum neunten Mal der grösste Team Wettkampf im deutschsprachigen Europa statt, die Swiss Team CHallenge (2017: 518 Teams/ 2072 athletes!). Der Anlass wird organisiert von CrossFit Basel und CrossFit Leman.

In allen CrossFit Boxen der ganzen Schweiz werden Teams gebildet, welche in drei Kategorien (Rookies, Regulars und Firebreathers) lokal in den jeweiligen Affiliates gegeneinander antreten. Die Resultate werden live online übertragen und ausgewertet. Die Teams bestehen aus vier Leuten, von welchen mindestens eine Frau und ein Mann dabei sein muss.

Die Teams messen sich in mehreren Events, welche vor der CHallenge bekannt gegeben werden. Zudem wird es – wie bereits in den vergangenen Jahren – wieder entsprechende Videos geben, worauf die Standards ersichtlich sind.

Die Workouts sind so kreiert, dass möglichst viele Athletinnen und Athleten egal (EGAL!) welchen Niveaus teilnehmen können. Die Athleten der Kategorie Firebreathers beherrschen 80% der vorgeschriebenen Übungen auf dem Whiteboard – die Regular Athleten absolvieren eine skalierte Version der Workouts und in der Rookie Kategorie können ALLE mitmachen. Also nochmal: ALLE können teilnehmen, alles was Ihr braucht ist ein Team und viel Motivation!

Die Swiss Team CHallenge ist der grösste Event in unserer Box und wir hoffen, dass sich dieses Ereignis niemand entgehen lässt! Es ist ein einmaliges Erlebnis, als WettkämpferIn dabei zu sein und mitzufiebern. Wir versprechen einen spektakulären Tag mit viel Schweiss, Urschreien, einer genialen CrossFit Community, Party und gutem Essen. Dabei sein ist ein MUSS!

Wer uns gerne als Helfer oder Judge unterstützen möchte, darf eine Mail an rg@crossfitbasel.ch schreiben. Danke im Voraus!

Achtet auf die Plakate, die in Kürze in der Box aushängen, auf welchen ihr euch und euer Team eintragen müsst.

Wir bieten Platz für 48 Teams – first come, first served.

Ausländische Teams nehmen auch dieses Jahr wieder (zum dritten) Mal an der offiziellen, schweizweiten Wertung teil (sofern sie in einer Schweizer Box antreten) und können sich per Mail anmelden (siehe unten).

Die WODs und STANDARDS werden vor dem Wettkampf publiziert. Unter anderem findet ihr diese auf der offiziellen Facebookpage.

WICHTIG – TEAM CAPTAIN: Bei allen Teams sind die Captains (erster Athlet / erste Athletin auf dem Plakat) dafür verantwortlich, dass die Teammitglieder die Übungen, den Ablauf und die Standards kennen! Zudem schreibt der Captain eine Mail an rg@crossfitbasel.ch mit allen Namen der Athletinnen und Athleten, sowie deren T-Shirt-Grössen und Mailadressen.

JUDGES: Wir suchen noch Judges und Helfer (Fr-So)- meldet euch bitte bei: rg@crossfitbasel.ch
Man kann auch judgen UND als Athlet teilnehmen.
Das Judges Meeting findet am Montag den 25. Juni , 20:00 – 22:00 Uhr in der Box Dreispitz statt.

Wenn ihr nicht teilnehmt, kommt zum Zuschauen und Anfeuern! Je mehr Unterstützung unsere Teams haben, desto besser.

The teams compete in several events, which will be published ahead of the event with the respective standard videos.

The workouts are created for everyone – EVERYONE. We want as many athletes as possible to be part of the competition, no matter what level. Firebreather athletes master 80% of the given exercises on the Whiteboard, Regular athletes will absolve the scaled version of the workouts. The Rookie category is designed to let everybody participate. So, again: EVERYONE can participate, all you need is a team and big motivation!!

Results European Powerlifting Championships 2018 (WDFPF) – King’s Lynn ENG

WE ARE PROUD TO BE STRONG!

CrossFit Basel was represented by Headcoach Ramon Gysin at the European Powerlifting Championships 2018 (WDFPF) in King’s Lynn ENG. He came in second in the -100kg Senior Division.  Congratulations!

Our lifting Team currently holds 101 swiss, 12 european and 10 world records!

Find detailed explanation about the sport of Powerlifting as well as past reports on the bottom of the post.

Results Ramon Gysin, BW 99.4kg/-100kg:

Backsquat: 265kg
Bench Press: 165kg
Deadlift: 277.5kg
Total: 707.5kg

HEADCOACH RAMON GYSIN: „I am happy with my result, it’s been the fourth weekend in a row I have been competing. It has not been my best lifting day by far but I did my best and this is what counts in the end. I also had my easiest weight loss ever, going down from 102.9kg on Friday night to 99.4kg on Sunday early morning. I also felt good in the morning but last week’s Strongman Competition surely took it’s toll in the Squat and the Deadlift. I love lifting in the WDFPF, today I was lifting on the same platform together with a 76 (210kg Deadlift) and 78 (180kg Deadlift with replaced knee!) year old! Tell me another sport where this happens. Now two days relaxing in London and then back home! I also got sun burned, in the UK!!“

What is Powerlifting?

Every athlete has three attempts in the following three exercises (Powerlifts). The total of the best lifts count towards the total.

Backsquat:

You can also compete in Single Lift Competitions where you choose to compete in one, two, or all three lifts, but get ranked separately in each lift.

There are raw competitions where only a belt is allowed and there are equipped competitions (single ply => one layer of suits/equipment and multi ply => several layers of equipment) where athletes wear assistant suits, briefs and knee wraps to be able to lift much more weight.

Team CrossFit Basel is competing raw.

What is the WDFPF?

The World Drug Free Powerlifting Federation was established to give drug free lifters a home as in most strength sports there is no or little drug testing. In fact there is no other sports federation (including ALL olympic sports!) in the world today that knows such severe punishment like the WDFPF. If an athlete is tested positive he or she will be banned FOR LIFE and all past results will be erased.

The WDFPF is also an inclusive federation, all athletes, no matter what age, are competing at the same venue at the same competition together, ranked in their respective weight and age classes.

Results Swiss Single Lift Championships 2018 (SDFPF) – Zuchwil

WE ARE PROUD TO BE STRONG!

CrossFit Basel was represented by Headcoach Ramon Gysin at the Swiss Single Lift Championships 2018 (SDFPF) in Zuchwil SO. He won best lifter overall male in the Back Squat and Deadlift taking two new swiss records. Congratulations!

Our lifting Team currently holds 101 swiss, 12 european and 10 world records!

Find detailed explanation about the sport of Powerlifting as well as past reports on the bottom of the post.

Results Ramon Gysin, BW 101.8kg/-110kg:

Backsquat: 275kg (Swiss Record)
Bench Press: 160kg
Deadlift: 295kg (Swiss Record, personal life time best)
(Unofficial total: 730kg)

HEADCOACH RAMON GYSIN: „Very unexpected, this was my second best competition in Powerlifting/Single Lift EVER. I will not compete international in Single Lift this year due to having further education scheduled at the same dates. Today was more like a test day for the upcoming bigger competitions in two (Strongman) and three (European Championship in Powerlifting) weeks. 275kg Back Squat is my 4th best Squat ever and for the first time I got 295kg in the Deadlift.
Taking away best lifter trophies in Squat and Deadlift was the big goal for today. The race was very tight and I am glad I made it. I had a good friendly fight with Daniel Velarde in the Squat and Dario Dorizzi in the Deadlift, being separated only by merely one point in each movement. They definitely helped me to achieve these big lifts today, thanks for the motivation and challenge!“

REEBOK CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN 2018 18.5 / / RECAP

Open Workout 18.5 and RECAP of five weeks of fun and community!

It’s done! Once again.

The CrossFit Games Open: Every year, these five weeks stir up mixed emotions. A cocktail of expectancy, high hopes, impatience and joy mixed with apprehension, respect and maybe a pinch of fear.

The CrossFit Games Open 2018 ended with a Repeater.

Workout 18.5 = 12.5 = 11.6

Complete as many reps as possible in 7 minutes of:
3 thrusters
3 chest-to-bar pull-ups
6 thrusters
6 chest-to-bar pull-ups
9 thrusters
9 chest-to-bar pull-ups
12 thrusters
12 chest-to-bar pull-ups
15 thrusters
15 chest-to-bar pull-ups
18 thrusters
18 chest-to-bar pull-ups

This is a timed workout. If you complete the round of 18, go on to 21. If you complete 21, go on to 24, etc.

Men use 100 lb. / Women use 65 lb.

Looks simple and „easy“ but it was a real mindf**k. A nice grueling finisher after 5 weeks of pure CrossFit. „Constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity.“

Some people are happy that it’s over. Sleepless thursday-nights before the workout-announcement. The fear for Burpees and Thrusters…sore muscles and painfaces all over the place.

But as tough it was, it was also a great time to grow as a person and as a community. We had 130 CFBS-Athletes who signed up for the Open 2018 and were able to beat last year´s numbers! Great work peeps! The team spirit was awesome and it was beautiful to see how you guys are helping each other out by cheering and offering support. That’s what those times are about. Growing stronger – physically and physiologically as a human.

This year the Open showed the direction how the sport is developing. Weights and skills are getting „heavier“. More people chose the scaled variation. But that’s not a bad thing. It’s just an option to make the experience possible for more people. It is also showing us that almost nothing is impossible and that there’s always a way to improve and „get better than yesterday“.
Many athletes got their first double under, toes to bar, pull-up, chest to bar pull-up or even muscle-ups.

Now some numbers and final performance analysis:

Alessia qualified again for the Meridian Regionals! All your hard and dedicated work pays off girl! You rock!

 This is copied straight from the CrossFit Games Open Rule book:

„The team Leaderboard is unofficial and subject to change until all Individual athletes have completed the video review process and either accepted or rejected their invitation to compete at regionals.“ We will know how the final leaderboard looks after April 16, when the individuals have decided about wether they go team or individual.

The following leaderboard is just provisionally.

Rankings so far in Region Europe South:

We are currently sitting within the 15 qualifying spots in the newly created region „Europe South“. We are curious to see how the leaderboard changes after the removal of 40 Individual athletes. We are honestly not expecting to qualify as after the removal of Alessia’s excellent performances we will most likely drop out of the top 15. But we are confident to be able to build a team for 2019 as we have one year of preparation ahead and many talented athletes at the box.

This year also shows new athletes on the CFBS-Top Ten Leaderboard:


and the CFBS Downtown-Top Ten:

Swiss wide leaderboard:

Joel Wächter (15.), Tom Schwander (16.) and Sascha Albini (18.) belong to the top 20 in Switzerland.
Alessia Wälchli (3.) and Jessi Preiss (9.) belong to the top 10 in Switzerland.

Swiss wide leaderboard masters categories top 20:

Markus Wellenreiter (7. 35-39), Sarah Mentzen (8. 35-39), Jeannine Borer (16. 35-39), Sascha Albini (1. 40-44, 2. IN EUROPE SOUTH MASTERS 40-44 DIVISION), Gail McBride (16. 40-44), Döne Bonina (18. 40-44), Rachel Elend (10. 45-49), Cornelia Köppel (17. 45-49), Walter Bartolotta (18. 50-54), Adrian Gasser (3. 55-59), David Stöckli (5. 55-59), Marie Lavina (5. 55-59), Esteban Pombo (6. 60+), Dora Seebacher (1. 60+, 7. IN EUROPE SOUTH MASTERS 60+ DIVISON)

So much respect for you all! Lifetime goals…just sayin’…


 

FINAL standings of CrossFit Basel and CrossFit Basel Downtowns internal Open competition:

Take a look for more (and more) and stay tuned for more news and infos towards CFBS @ MERIDIAN REGIONALS!

——————————————————————————————————————————————

Some „deep thoughts“ at the end:

Excerpt from this article. Many people got quite emotional about how the Open evolved and ask your for more every year:

„At breakfast, I told Coach Glassman I had visited the old CrossFit HQ, and he jokingly said the place is probably a meth lab now. He showed no sentimentality at all—the mark of a leader who has always been way ahead of the pack. We’re looking forward, son—always.

You shouldn’t be sentimental about CrossFit either. Doing so is literally bad for your health.

This year’s Open competition was next level, and some sentimental people didn’t like that. They longed for the old days, which are long gone, even if 18.5 was a repeat of a test seen in 2011 and 2012.

In some forums, I heard a few people complaining about workouts that were very, very challenging at the Rx level, as if something had been taken away from them. Some were upset about the placement of difficult gymnastics elements, the number of reps, the loads and the new movements that thinned the herd. It was as if some thought the tests weren’t “appropriate” solely because they didn’t have the fitness to do them or weren’t prepared for them. Some seemed to think a few athletes “deserved” to be at Regionals due to past performance, not current fitness levels.“

On- and upwards. Always work hard and give your best. Do not stress about it, but keep going and never stop. Set realistic goals, and work on them every day. Body, mind and soul need to be in balance. Know your values and principles. Be conscious about where your path is leading you towards. Do not resent if something goes not as planned, but change, if you are unhappy with what the world currently presents to you. Change what you are in control with and accept the rest. Look at your results and decide if you want to be better or if you are happy with them in comparison to the work you put in. Do so without emotions, but using ratio. Then think about the next steps. Plan, work. Repeat.

On the performance side, The Open is simply a reality check. But do not forget the other side. You are not alone on this journey. Honor the community that supports you. Cheer and support your friends when they need you, because at some point you need someone as well. Celebrate your fitness, party together and enjoy the awesome time we spend together!

Stay strong and keep shining

HEADCOACH RAMON GYSIN
