CAMILLE LEBLANC BAZINET RETURNS TO CROSSFIT GAMES FOR NINTH TIME AFTER BAD INJURY AT THE 2017 GAMES
“From last August 21st to yesterday! I’ve been so laser focus on the process that this morning was one of the first time I reflected on how far I’ve come… I am beyond grateful for all the new amazing people that join my team this year to help me come back from my surgery! I dislocated my shoulder and tore my labrum last summer and underwent shoulder surgery! Thanks to my surgeon for being so amazing @kseng73 , to my rehab guy @jtodd28 and to my mental coach @justinsua for keeping me sane and focused!!! This is just one more stepping stone towards the big show and I know I have a lot of work ahead of me!!! (So many more people to thank to and will do in the next post haha).”
“If you think the road back from injury will be easy let me tell you it ain’t … you will be challenge every step of the way and question your will many many many times… and when you think it might be finally over it will hit you hard again! … the good news is I’ve grown more in the past 9months or so then I’ve ever before, I am more résiliant more consistant and more brave then I’ve ever been!!! The struggle is the gift and that’s what I remind myself when I am tested again and again and again! Hard work is just hard.”
BJORGVIN KARL GUDMUNDSSON’S EPIC COMEBACK
Bjorgvin Karl Gudmundsson went into the Europe Regional as the number 1 favourite. He finished the first day in 19th position, a bad result for an athlete that rarely found himself outside the top 5, but by the end of event 6 he had fought his way back up to fifth and earned his fifth trip to The CrossFit games.
In this interview with Snorri Bjorns, Bjorgvin explains exactly what happened, the obstacles he had to overcome, how he pulled off this impressive feat and exactly what was going through his mind the entire time.
