About 500 people, including 120 athletes, attended the sixth annual Carson City Crossfit New Kids in the Box Competition held on Saturday at Mills Park.

Each athlete performed four workouts.

“New Kids in the Box was my first competition,” said Hannah DeGoey. “I’ve been attending Carson City Crossfit since March and have found the coaching there to be a reason why I keep coming back. I didn’t know what to expect going in but once I started competing, I found the skill level of the other competitors to be something to aspire to. The workouts were tough for me, but I felt myself pushing even harder thanks to the motivation from my Carson City Crossfit family. Thanks to this competition, I’ve learned that I can push past what I thought were my limits and will motivate myself to work even harder for next year.”

Carson City Crossfit owners Jill and Lief Larson thanked all the affiliates, athletes, judges, vendors and the Crossfit community that made the event possible.
