Brooke Wells broke her finger during the friday night lights event “Assault Banger”. After the Games were over she posted these stories on instagram:
Brooke Wells: “This weekend was an incredible learning experience, two of the things that stand out to me the most;
• Never stop fighting. On Friday, I was in 31st place. I had three events (IN A ROW) that were a complete disaster for me. That was absolutely devastating. But instead of accepting a spot in the bottom ten, I left everything I had out on the competition floor & worked my way up to 14th. 14th place in the WORLD, that’s something to be proud of, right?!
I couldn't have made it through the CrossFit Games weekend without the support & help of my team, community & volunteers behind me ❤️ From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU; •To my coach who has literally put so much time & effort every. single. day. into making me the best I can be physically, mentally & all around a better person @benbergeron @competitorstraining •To all my sponsors who have supported me & provided me with the best of the best products. @nobullproject @cellucor @purestrength @killcliff @compexusa @paleopowermeals @rxsmartgear @mbslingshot @workingagainstgravity •To my home gym @crossfitfringe & the gyms who have made me feel like family these past few months @crossfitgambit @barxcrossfit @cfne •To @okeefmr for literally helping me with anything & everything. •To the staff, judges, volunteers & @thedavecastro for making this weekend such a success. •To my family @sydneywells @lisalynnwells (dad & Char), bestfriend @aspiesparks & partner in crime @jessicargriffith for putting up with me all weekend. •To the COMMUNITY. All the people in the stands cheering us on, the girls I got to compete alongside & the people back home watching from their tv's. THANK YOU. All the glory to God. 2017 in the books, bring on 2018 ?
• Have FUN! I cannot say I was in the best spirits heading into Saturday, but as soon as I stopped feeling sorry for myself & treated each event like it was MY workout (whether it was in my wheelhouse or not), forgot about what place I was in & truly had a blast on the floor- I started to preform like myself.
2017 has come to a (quick) end & although it did not play out like I had imagined, this does not take away from the amazing year I’ve had. There is so much to be proud of. Not to mention, the beautiful women I get to compete against are so incredible. After this week of relaxing, good food & focusing on my family & friends, it’s back to the drawing board to make 2018 the best year yet. I can promise y’all that ?”
