Spirit of the Open 19.2: Trina Roeser


Each year at the CrossFit Games, they honor someone with the Spirit of the Games award. This honor goes to the ‘athlete who embodies the spirit of the sport.’

Each week during Friday Night Throwdown, No Excuses CrossFit will recognize a member it feels represented the Spirit of the Games. This week’s honor goes to ….

Trina Roeser could have easily not done 19.2 and no one would have blamed her. She had just spent half the day working a 12-hour shift at the hospital. When she arrived at the gym, everyone else had already completed the workout in earlier heats. She could have easily gone home, but she didn’t. Trina stayed to do the workout by herself, and with a group of members by her side to cheer her on.

“That takes a lot of determination, especially knowing how hard it is for her to come WOD on any particular day,” No Excuses CrossFit coach Yessica Rojas said. “Kudos to her!”

Congrats Trina! We are proud of all your hard work!
