SHAWN RAMIREZ

Shawn Ramirez sits in first place in the Masters 40 – 44 division after a second place finish in the California Club and a first in Adios Amigos events. The ‘Ram’ is the favourite to win and his solid performances so far show that he has his eyes once again set on first place.

LUIS OSCAR MORA

Luis is the only male competitor from Latin America competing at the Games. He is 17 and trains at Crossfit Vallarta. In the first event (California Club) he finished in fourth place and smashed his way through the 151 kg (335lbs) Deadlifts with ease during the gruelling chipper.

He finished with over six minutes remaining.

ALLISON WEISS

Aged 17, Allison took first place in Adios Amigos and third in California Club to secure her the top spot in the teenage Girls (16 – 17) Division at the close of the first day.

CALIFORNIA CLUB

Here are the weights for the Deadlifts in the different categories:

  • Masters 40-44, Masters 45-49, Masters Men 50-54 165 / 115 kg (365 / 255 lb.)
  • Masters Women 50-54 102.5 kg (225lb)
  • Masters 55-59 151 / 92 kg (335 / 205 lb)
  • Masters 60+ 124 / 83 kg (275 / 185lb)
  • Teenagers 14-15 92 / 65 kg (205 / 145 lb)
  • Teenagers 16-17 151 / 92 kg (335 / 205 lb)

ADIOS AMIGOS

Adios Amigos is an interesting event because as the weight on the Barbell for the Snatches increases, the Muscle Ups decrease. It is guaranteed to test your technique under pressure and fatigue.

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
