County trio prevails in N.Y. fitness event
ALBANY, N.Y. — A team of three Addison County residents won a CrossFit competition on April 21 in Albany that drew 13 teams from around the Northeast, including New York, Massachusetts and Vermont.
Under the name 2 Bar-Bellas and Stevie B, the team of Elizabeth Sabourin, Steven Beckwith and Alicia Prime competed in the “scaled” division.
In general, CrossFit competitions incorporate fitness elements from several sports and types of exercise. The event hosted by CrossFit Shatter included heavy weightlifting, pull-ups, jump-roping, box-jumping and resistance biking.
2 Bar-Bellas and Stevie B qualified to be one of the three teams in a final competition during four different events.
They learned the final competition would be 12 timed minutes of three types of weightlifting that each team member would perform for four minutes each. The trio then won that event to claim the overall title.
