Daniel picking heavy stuff off the ground at the 2008 CF Games
It is only fitting that today we turn the spotlight on a competitor in the upcoming CF Games Nor-Cal Sectional Qualifier – Daniel H. We are so proud of all of our athletes, which will become very apparent when the CFO crowd is by far the most obnoxious this weekend. But Daniel is one of those guys that very quietly and consistently crushes pretty much every WOD ever written on a whiteboard and it is always a pleasure and privilege to cheer him on.
Daniel is also responsible for the stunning pull-up bars at CFO as well as the racks that hold most of our weights. Seriously, take a closer look – the man is an artist. Daniel is having a busy and exciting 2010. In addition to kicking some serious posterior chain at the Sectionals, he is working on the new Bay Bridge project and getting married to the lovely Candace.
Post your thoughts on this amazing cross-fitter, metal-artist and husband-to-be in comments.
