Camille Leblanc-Bazinet’s 2017 has started out great. Bazinet won the 2017 Wodapalooza’s Elite Women’s competition yesterday ahead of some other CrossFit Games veterans, including Brooke Wells, Dani Horan and Carly Fuhrer.
Bazinet started the three-day competition out strong by winning the first event, Assault on Fran. She followed that up with three more event wins over the weekend. With only one event outside the top 10 Bazinet, the 2014 CrossFit Games champion, looks strong heading into the 2017 CrossFit Games season.
And that’s a wrap!!! Thank you to all the fan volunteers and literally anyone who was involved in this event @thewodapalooza … I am amaze by how well the whole event was run and the magnitude of it! Congrats to all the athletes to who put up such a great and inspiring show 💋@reebok @rehband @redbull @roguefitness @xendurance @mypowerdot @haloneuroscience #nano7 #tinybutmighty
Brooke Wells also had a good showing this weekend. It was the first big competition for Wells since she transitioned under Ben Bergeron. Wells won two events and took 2nd two other times.
Alanna Fisk took 3rd place overall, narrowly edging out Dani Horan. Fisk finished with four top 5 finishes. Fisk is used to competing at a high level as she finished 19th and 13th at the 2015 and 2016 CrossFit Atlantic Regionals, respectively.
Other CrossFit Games veterans competing in the Individual Elite division included Kelley Jackson, Alex Parker, Carleen Mathews, Bjork Odinsdottir, Tasia Percevecz, Tennil Reed and Amanda Goodman. Thuri Helgadottir and Kari Pearce were scheduled to compete, but did not. Pearce dropped out due to an Achilles injury.
