Olympian Chad Vaughn, competed this weekend in the first ever CrossFit/USAW Weightlifting Open. Deric also competed and took 2nd place in the 69kg class. The event was an amazing mix of CrossFit and Olympic lifting. Olympic lifters taking on a CrossFit wod is a pretty cool thing to see. Several of the competitors jumped out of their comfort zone to attempt the triplet at the competition. Many of the CrossFitters posted some pretty good lifts too.
