“Whose car are we gonna’ take…”

Posted in Competition on September 6, 2011 by oldcountrystrong

Every Old Country athlete has something in common. A bond built through hard work with the Iron. And while there are many reason why those who believe in the Old Country ideal do this there is a common concept.


And while not everyone competes on the Iron Club Competition Team we can all support each other.

“I need your help. I can’t tell you what it is, you can never ask me about it later, and we’re gonna hurt some people.”

The answer to the question above is posted in today title. The Old Country Competition Season kicked off July 13th with PipeHitters. We had 7 Old Country athletes reach the finals of that event. Then Ryan Andrews represented The Club at the end of August at the Oregon Games in Bend. He placed 4th out of 60 men finishing just behind top Crossfit Games Regional contenders and beating out former Crossfit Games competitors.

But whats next?
