Wednesday: “Nordheimsund”

Home – Single Post

Just like David and Victoria Beckham did it in Brooklyn, Thierry had a moment in Nordheimsund. Something like that. Either way he made this WOD 🙂

When the wod is self explanatory it’s time for other things. That’s perfect conditions for “professor” Gabor 😂

The weightlifting 🏋️ classes are now totally taken over by the Hordnes clan. Lena Hordnes Berntsson is your new weightlifting coach on Wednesday’s 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

She has won the Swedish championship in 100 m sprint and Olympic Weightlifting, and maybe more. It’s to much to read on Wikipedia. Read the whole blog and you will understand. We are proud and happy to have Lena.

Dush was not interested in wods or Olympic Weightlifting today. He is training for the juleball. Last year he won first prize in the politically un correct “Butt of the year” category.

It was tension in the room during the ceremony 😅

Ove is hoping for best biceps, but the jury might introduce “Best chest” If so, Dush will win it again😎

CrossFit Bryggens annually Christmas party takes place Saturday the first of December. Pinnekjøtt, Dj, Entertainment and Tyggen in the bar. It’s a famous party 🎉. It takes place at Crossfit Bryggen. Only for members.

Here is Lena’s impressive Wikipedia:

Lena Berntsson (born 4 November 1978 in Gothenburg) is a Swedish athlete who has competed internationally in both weightlifting and track and field. She lifts in the 53 kg weight category in weightlifting and on the track she specialises in short sprinting events, particularly the 60 metres.

She started her sporting career as a 60 metres specialist, recording a personal best of 7.44 seconds in 2000 and improving it to 7.42 seconds the following year.[1] She suffered a knee injury in 2002 and during this time her sister, Annika Berntsson, introduced her to the sport of weighlifting.[2] She underwent a significant operation in 2005, having tendon surgery in both knees, and she did not return to full fitness until 2007.[3]

She was the 2007 Swedish champion in the 100 m, the 2008 national champion in the 100 metres hurdles, and she did a 100 and 200 metres double at the 2009 Swedish championships. She had similar success indoors, becoming the Swedish indoor champion over 60 m and the 60 metres hurdles in 2008, and retaining her 60 m title the following year.[1] She also represented her country at the Finland-Sweden athletics international during this period, at which she won medals in the short sprints, the sprint hurdles, and the long jump.

She took part in the 2008 IAAF World Indoor Championships in Valencia, Spain. She reached the semi-finals of the women’s 60 metres competition, running a personal best of 7.26 seconds to finish behind LaVerne Jones-Ferrette and outside of qualification.[4] In March 2009 she was entered into the European Athletics Indoor Championships and she equalled her personal best to finish fifth in the 60 m final.[5] The following month she competed at the 2009 European Weightlifting Championships in Bucharest and she finished twelfth in the women’s 53 kg category,[3] completing a snatch of 71 kg (a Swedish record) and a clean and jerk of 85 kg.[6]

Later that year she took part in the 2009 European Team Championships and represented Sweden in the 100 and 200 m sprints.[1] In November, she was selected to compete at the 2009 World Weightlifting Championships in the 53 kg category and finished in fifteenth place with a snatch of 70 kg and a clean and jerk of 90 kg.[7] Her first major competition of 2010 was the 2010 IAAF World Indoor Championships at which she finished seventh in her 60 m semi-final race with a run of 7.41 seconds.[1] Shortly afterwards she attended the 2010 European Weightlifting Championships in Minsk and finished with a total of 160 kg (72 kg in snatch, 88 kg in clean and jerk).[2]
