Sarah Loogman : @sarahloogman

Sarah Loogman, formerly of Etna, held her own against a group of elite athletes at this weekend’s Regional CrossFit competition, which is held each year to determine who will move on to the international CrossFit Games.

Loogman’s efforts in the Open ranked her 13th out of 4,990 women vying for one of the 20 spots in the Northern California region.

The top 20 men and 20 women from the Northern and Southern California regions were invited to the California Regional competition, which took place over the weekend from May 13-15.
The competition featured seven events, each with its own grueling workout that had to be completed as fast as possible. Competing against 36 other elite athletes from California, Loogman earned the 15th place spot. While she did not make the top five, who go on to the international CrossFit Games, she said that her highlights for the competition included two top 10 event finishes, along with winning her heat in event 6.

Sarah dedicated her entire Regionals performance and experience to her Ojiichan (grandfather) in Japan who is in the final stages of cancer. As he is one of her biggest fans, he was able to watch some of the archived footage of her performance.
