On June 29th and 30th, seven Manitobans made the trek to Burnsville, MN. for the 2012 Team Spartacus Open, held at Crossfit South Metro. By all accounts our local lifters fared very well in the heat, with several 6/6 performances, some season bests and a few all-time PR’s.

Manitoba Highlights:  Rosemary Densmore took home best female lifter of the competition with a 150kg total (66+84), with Eric Mazur placing second overall in the men, including a competition PR of 112kg in the snatch.  Both Enrique Wiebe and Steve Heinrichs put up strong performances in spite of being hampered by work commitments and injury, respectively, and Sean Mazur couldn’t wait to get a 120kg 3rd attempt Clean and Jerk back onto the platform.  Word has it that he will be good for a lot more in the near future.

A hearty thank you goes out from all attendees to Team Spartacus for hosting a fun and competitive summer event.
