A huge Congratulations to Jerry Wilson who competed in the 50-54yr old Master’s Qualifier over the weekend. When it was all said and done Jerry finished just outside of qualifying for The CrossFit Games – 27th out of more than 4,000 worldwide competitors this year.
We couldn’t be more proud of Jerry’s effort all year training for this opportunity. With nothing but determination over the weekend Jerry repeated 3 of the 4 workouts for a total of 7 workouts over 4 days – each time he repeated a workout he improved. In the end it was just 19 points keeping Jerry from qualifying, a stellar performance in a field that saw 7 out of 20 qualifiers last year barely miss the field this year.
Jerry is a perfect example of what makes MTM truly great. He consistently works hard and smart balancing a professional career, family, and his own ability to train and recover. At every moment he’s humble and approachable – always willing to help coach a fellow athlete or help a new member improve. At each workout he gives his 100% effort ensuring that each and every rep is a quality rep that he can be proud of.
Moving forward Jerry will likely be taking a couple days of rest and then head back to it working up a plan to improve for next year. Be sure to congratulate him in the gym when you see him on a hard fought effort this year!
