If anyone watched the Central Region of CrossFit Games Regionals last week, you would have seen an amazing comeback despite devastating circumstances. I'm talking about Julie Foucher. Prior to regionals, Foucher said this would be her last regionals and last Games provided she placed top 5. As day 1 came to a close, few doubted Foucher's ability to top the podium by the end of the weekend. But with less than 90 seconds left in Event 3, Foucher tore her Achilles tendon on a box jump. She struggled to stand, but still managed to get 4 more reps in by jumping and landing with her good leg. After the event, there were a lot of questions as to the severity of her injury, and whether or not she'd be able to finish out the weekend. Below is a video of event 4. Foucher did what she could the rest of the weekend, and her performance during event's 4, 5, and 6 were all so inspiring. With or without a boot, Foucher is a great example of hard work and dedication.
Foucher finished 8th overall at the Central Regional.
Without dropping the bar, complete the following sequence 7 times:
*Start light and increase weight each round
*Rest as necessary between rounds
