I am going to start this off by saying how incredibly proud I am of every single athlete that signed up for the Opens this year. It is not always easy to put yourself out there when faced with a challenge and you have fought tenaciously through them all!
We all know that the workouts for this five weeks are a bit…. insane, but did you know that there is a scaled division in the Opens as well that is no joke? We have a dynamic duo at our box who is also no joke and is absolutely crushing the Opens 60+ scaled division. Frank Chan has done the Opens each year and this year, his wife Stephanie decided (after always cheering him on) to join him. This couple has been at MCCF for about 7 out of the 7 &1/2 years we’ve been open and are lifetime members of our box. They come to MCCF five times a week and did I mention that they are 60 and 61 years young?
As of today, in their age/scaled division, Frank is 15th in the North East and 83rd in the WORLD! And Stephanie? Well…she is 2nd in the North East and 4th IN THE WORLD! All I can say is WOW!
I think I speak for all of us when I say Mr. and Mrs. Chan, you are INCREDIBLE!
