CROSSFIT NEWS – Brooke Ence is Forced to Withdraw from The CrossFit Open 2017!

Brooke Ence is out for the CrossFit Games season this year.

Brooke Ence will not be competing in the CrossFit Open 2017

“First off, i am so sorry that I have waited til now to announce this.
I’m beyond devastated to say this but I will not be able to compete this Crossfit Games Open. After two months of seeing my Chiro and physio almost daily, my symptoms just weren’t getting better, in fact they were getting worse. {Intense constant nerve pain, loss of strength in my right tricep and my right hand. I loved to describe it as though I were the patient in the game Operation and whoever was playing the game TOTALLY sucked. }

While everyone was watching the 17.1 announcement I was driving myself to get an MRI. Results: SEVERELY HERNIATED C6,C7

Craziest part is that I literally just woke up one day in a lot of pain while I was home for Christmas. I didn’t have a clue that something like that was going on, nothing had happened, no missed lifts, I didn’t fall on my head. Nothing. So to say I’m frustrated is a bit of an understatement, my heart is broken.
It has been such a rough week and I’m sure there will be a few more moments through out this season where my emotions get the best of me, however I AM going to get through this and I WILL be back next year. I love a challenge.

And how bad could I actually look in a neck brace ? ?

Good luck to to all my competitors, give it hell for me.”

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.
