Corey Lunney, Christian Harris, Kyle Kant and Chase Smith have all suffered injuries from the ring dips during Event 2 at The CrossFit East Regionals.
This is not an easy post to write. During the first set of ring dips in Event 2 I felt a tear in my left pec muscle. I was unable to continue in the event, and because of that I had to withdraw from the competition. • It’s always tough when a whole year of hard work, sacrifice, and training ends in the blink of an eye. It’s especially tough because I felt I brought my best fitness to regionals this year, and I also thought the events were great for me. But sometimes things are out of our control and all we can do it move forward. • I wanted to post this to thank each and every person who has shown me support and has reached out. I want to thank all of my sponsors for everything they have done for me leading up to this weekend. @mission6nutrition @misfitathletics @dawnofthyme @fitaid @sharpentheaxe @virusintl • Thanks so much to the #shrewcrew both at home and who traveled who support me all year. It means so much to me and I would never want to go through any of this without you. Another huge thank you to my parents who support me in each and every thing that I do. Thanks for always being there for me! • Now it’s time to try to rest up and recover and supoort @clauuddss and @avazquez03 and the rest of the #misfit crew all weekend! On to the 2018 season.
Alex Vigneault also had to withdraw before the competition started due to to Pectoral tear whilst practicing the event
I’m sorry to all of you. Sometimes life doesn’t go as planned. This situation is out of my control and the only thing I can change is the way I react to it. The last few days were very tough mentally but I have amazing people around me. Tomorrow in the warm-up area, if I can’t do a ring dip, the 2017 season will be over for me. I’m sorry. I promise that in 2018 I will be back. @crossfitgames . . . #Repost @crossfitphotojournal (@get_repost) ・・・ HT @crossfitgames, Canada East’s top seed has a partial pec tear and said he’s “5 percent” likely to compete at the #EastRegional tomorrow. Alex Vigneault explained that he injured the pec in training on the last rep of Event 2. He’ll make the call tomorrow after warm-up. “I can’t even do a ring dip right now. Not even a push-up.” He’d prefer recovery time of about 5 weeks for a partial tear to 5 months for a total tear, which would set back his training to be a police officer. He’s thinking long term and will most likely be on the sidelines Friday. 📷 @crossfit204 #CrossFitGames #CrossFit #TheRegionals #EastRegional
