Local Crossfit team 9th in the world

Davenport, Iowa - A local Crossfit team is being recognized as one of the best in the world after competing the in the World Crossfit Games.

The team's story began with a setback. But, OC3 Black in Davenport didn't let one mistake stop the athletes from trying to be the best in the world. 

"Every other person is going over it no problem, they have no problem with it." Says OC3 Owner and Team Captain Collin Cartee, "But for some reason that day the hand wouldn't grab the rope, and that's one thing with this sport. one thing you can't do can screw over your entire team and it just happened to be me that day."

You're unsure, heading into the competition, what physical challenges will be asked of your body. You must be prepared for anything. 

Team captain Collin Cartee's setback put OC3 Black from Davenport into 26th place in the World Championship Crossfit Games. However quitting was not an option for Cartee or his team.

"Something went wrong in our game early on and we decided we can either finish it and we can persevere through what had happened and come together as a team or we can sit there and quit and pout the rest of the time and that's not a option here." Says, Cartee.

Through their continued determination,  they jumped from 26th place, to being recognized as the 9th best team in the world. 

"It's very very very cool. I think that even through we didn't  hit our goal, to be able to say that you are the night fittest affiliate, you have the 9th fittest gym in the entire world, that speaks volumes to OC3 and our coaches." 

Even though this year did not turn out exactly the way OC3 Black would have hoped, they are already looking forward to next year.

"17 for us in the past. We have the skill here, we have the coaches here and we have the facilities here to be a top three team in the world if not win the Crossfit games and that is absolutly our plan for next year and we started working on that the second we came home."
