Spirit of the Open 19.4: Pete Sereno

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 ….

Pete Sereno came into 19.4 pretty excited. Despite never doing a bar muscle up before, he felt confident he could get one on Friday night. After finishing the first part of 19.4, Pete had less than three minutes to get his first bar muscle up. After multiple failed attempts and less than 30 seconds remaining in the workout, Pete got his first bar muscle up.

“He is such a good example for his family, they all look up to him,” No Excuses CrossFit coach Vanessa Whitten said. “And the fact that he donated, judged, got his first bar muscle up, and included his family in all of it is inspiring.”

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