CrossFit Open 16.3 Recap
By Michael Wuest
16.3 is a short couplet with two movements, light power snatches and muscle-ups. I LOVE muscle-ups. Not so much performing them in high numbers, but watching people attempt and get a muscle-up, especially if they’ve never been able to get one before. During 16.3, we had four athletes get their first muscle-ups and many more get multiples in 7 minutes. Congratulations to Matt Rau, Traci Scardina, Scott Zimmerman, Brittany Loehner, Jerem Gilion and Yousif Abdulreheim.
16.3 was also very emotional night at the gym. We learned that our dear friend, Brad Vickers Jr, had past away just a few days prior. Brad was one of our original coaches when we opened CrossFit COMO. About a year after coaching with us, Brad went on to open Bluff Street CrossFit in Fulton, MO. I ended up sharing who Brad was with our current athletes and what he meant to me and our community. Brad’s memory will be forever in our hearts and I’ll never forget how emotional 16.3 was for me. Thank you to the CrossFit COMO community for standing behind me during this time. Your support means everything.
