Simon before his last workout at CFO this evening
Simon, our resident 25-year old German wunderkind, is heading back to Germany tomorrow. He was here on a fellowship at UC Berkeley for the summer and was able to spend a good deal of time training with us at CFO in his downtime.
It was a pleasure having him here. I’m pretty sure there isn’t a single CF movement that he can’t do–and do extremely well. Anyone who saw him do muscle-ups, rope climbs, butterfly pull-ups, etc. can attest to this.
Simon became a regular with the evening crew (usually training at 6pm) and a number of his fellow CFOers are really going to miss him. And he only just started, it seems. I know Gabe, in particular, will be sad to see his arch-rival leaving.
Safe travels, Simon, and keep in touch! And best of luck in the European Regional next year!
