It has been very busy around the JAW office with our overseas websites launching and EOFY sales on. This was no exception when the team headed down to the Pacific Crossfit Regionals at the end of May.
Kym and Sean made the trip to Wollongong with the van packed to the brim with JAWsome goodies. The Pacific Regionals JAW store was a major success and regional attendees were the first too see a brand new product as JAW launched their new Baby/Kids Clothing Range.
The super cute t-shirts were a favourite among the athletes and spectators. Check out the new Kids Range online at the website.
Though Kym and Sean were kept incredibly busy running the regionals store, they were happily able to catch up with some of the JAW Ambassadors at the event.
They were rep-ing their JAW gear and brought a lot of fun and enthusiasm to the event.
From all reports the Crossfit Regionals were a major success and saw a heavily competitive line-up of athletes and some truly killer workouts.
This year JAW had a total of 7 athletes competing in both the Pacific (Australia, New Zealand and Asia) and Meridian (Europe and Africa) Regional events. Check out how they went:
OUR PACIFIC REGIONAL ATHLETES:
Amanda finished with an overall place of 13th. Her best results were a 5th placement for Event 1 and 4th place for Event 3.
