I am honored to announce the 2010 Athlete Of The Year at CrossFit Scottsdale as Matt Blanton. Matt has had an outstanding year filled with perseverance, strength and endurance. From breaking his leg early in the year in a dirt biking crash to having his first daughter with wife Michele in April. “When Matt got injured and couldnt use his leg I told him to work on his pull ups and row only focusing on his upper body and core until he was 100%”. In May at the CrossFit Games Regional at UC Irvine Matt was a catalyst on our Affiliate Cup Team and was only getting better when he won the Chipper Challenge in July. When I watched him crush the CrossFit Fury competition in October I knew all of his hard work had paid off, he finished in 3rd place out of 64 of the top male athletes in Arizona. “He has the heart of a lion and the mind of a Jedi while encompassing core family values and integrity with his company Printing solutions“.
Thank you for your commitment to “Elite Fitness” Matt you are a staple at CrossFit Scottsdale and a leader in our community.
Who’s going to take 2011?
