It has to be my first Throwdown in 2014! 3 months after starting I did my first in-house competition, and well, I got to find out the true Crossfit Jozi spirit! Last person in the workout, 30 overhead squats to go and all 70 odd people surrounded me and supported me through every rep until I finished! It was scary and exhilarating at the same time, but one of my best memory’s yet.
