Share this Article

Last weekend, TCSC sent 20 athletes to participate in the Okanagan Valley Throwdown (OVT) held in Penticton, a prestigious CrossFit event in the Interior that resumed in 2023 under new ownership after a three-year break due to the pandemic. This year's competition saw nearly 200 athletes from various gyms across British Columbia and Alberta, including a strong team from TCSC Kamloops, compete over two days.

TCSC showcased numerous outstanding individual performances and clinched the "Top Affiliate Title," reflecting their cumulative excellence in both team and individual categories throughout the event.

Kent Aitchison, the owner and coach of TCSC remarked, "Local competitions are an excellent opportunity for fitness athletes to advance their skills and fitness levels, as well as to strengthen bonds with teammates and the broader local CrossFit community. We were immensely proud of our team's showing and our presence was strongly felt, both in terms of the number of participants we fielded and the support we received throughout the event."

Aitchison further commented, "In addition to our daily general fitness programs, we actively incorporate events into our calendar to ignite motivation and foster goal-setting among our members who are eager for competition. Looking ahead, some of our athletes are preparing for the 'Grizzly Games' in Kelowna this July, followed by the highly anticipated Tournament Capital Classic, which we are proud to host in Kamloops on August 24th."
