THE BOX EPISODE 09 – ON RAMP IN AUSTRIA & SWEDEN
This week, The Box will go to Vienna, Austria with Sebastian Rieder Head Coach for Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. We will meet Philipp Wöhrle, 26, qualified athlete for the RCFFC final in Berlin on July 7th. He has been CrossFitting for over 12 months. He will take part in a very technical WOD supported by all his friends. We’ll learn more about one of the 9 functional movements of CrossFit, the Sumo Deadlift High Pull. Afterwards, we’ll head north to Sweden, where we’ll again meet Head Coach Rickard Walen and the dancer Karl Dyall. Numi Katrinarsson and his girlfriend, Elin Johnsdottir will share some thoughts from their home in Stockholm. In the Nordic box, we will also meet Louise Akesson, one of the best athletes of the country. Together they will work to improve their technique before doing a short and intense WOD.
Jamie is a professional Graphic Designer from the Preston area in the UK. He has been CrossFitting since 2010 after being hooked since his first workout. The sport has seen him travel through Europe with different athletes visiting even more boxes and meeting fascinating people from the community. I'm a self confessed adrenalin junkie who like to go high, go hard and go fast. A particular love of mine is skiing (freestyle / freeride) and if I could spend my days living in a shack on the side of a snow covered mountain I would. I am part of the team that created BOXROXmedia, so if you have any questions, ideas or feedback regarding our services, let me know!
