THE ABDOMINABLE SNOWJAM

THE ABDOMINABLE SNOWJAM ( Formally Team Shootout)

The Abdominable SnowJam is a one day event that look to bring together the Hong Kong CrossFit community during the festive period in December. This competition built on our previous team competition, The Team Shootout which ran in 2013. The tests are generally really inclusive and provide an opportunity for athletes across the city to get their first taste of competition, especially before training picks up for the CrossFit Open in the New Year.  The first Snowjam competition was run at the end of 2014 and saw teams of 2 males & 1 female compete over 3 events to crown a champion.

The Team Shootout was Hong Kong’s first ever TEAM Crossfit competition! With several established Crossfit gyms setting up in Hong Kong, the Team Shootout offered the chance for each box to show what they are made of over a two day competition. Each affiliate had the opportunity to field two teams consisting of two males and one female athlete over a series of 3 tests:

 

WOD 1: Jackie-Diane-Grace Relay

WOD 2: Clean and Jerk Ladder

WOD 3: The Chipper

 

The competition was fierce and saw the inclusion of several of Asia’s regional competitors for the first time in Hong Kong which set the stage for many to take their own game to the next level. The event has since morphed into the Abdominable (Not misspelled…he has a six pack!) Snow Jam powered by Progenex

The 2015SnowJam saw the return of Progenex as the title sponsor and once again a chance for Hong Kongs best to get a crack at some competition before the real season begins, and the leadup to the CrossFit Open. Maintaining the same 1 day, 3 events format, a nasty chipper at the end of proceedings saw a couple teams hustle to finish under the time cap to no available.

The 2016 Snowjam in 2016 saw the competition remain in house, with CSTL athletes combining to make teams of 2 and compete in 3 events. The idea was to keep the events inclusive, but also challenging for a wide array of competitors.
