Our April Athlete of the Month is a female of small size, but tremendous potential. She has a large heart and a strong sense of determination. That determination pushes her through even the toughest WODs. Weighing in at around 100 pounds, she managed to fight through and finish Open WOD 14.5 with eighty-five thrusters at more than half her body weight. Gena Khambounluang has definitely earned the honor of OGCF Athlete of the Month.

Almost one year ago, on April 1, 2013, our March Athlete of the Month, Everett Foreman, made the decision to try CrossFit.

If you are looking for the chalk during class, you should probably look in the vicinity of our February Athlete of the Month. Whether it is push ups, walking lunges, pull ups or box jumps; it does not matter what the WOD entails, she WILL NEED CHALK. So move out the way of the chalk bucket during your WOD for Mrs. Mandi Simoneaux!! Mandi is a thirty-one year old female athlete at OGCF. She is married to Jordan Simoneaux and has two children, Braeden and Elli. She spends her work days crunching numbers as an accountant at Arsement, Redd & Morella in Lafayette. After a long dayContinue Reading
