Natural Grip athletes Ron Ortiz and Shawn Ramirez did so many things right during the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games.
Ortiz, who competed in the Masters 50-54 division, and Ramirez, who competed in the 40-44 division, displayed their dominance throughout the entire competition. Ortiz took 1st in 4 of 7 events. One of the highlights was his 287lb clean, a massive 22lbs over his closest competitor in the event.
Ramirez, who has coming off an injury, showed little signs of slowing down or weakness, taking 1st in 3 of the 7 events, never placing outside of the top 10.
Some of the initial events were grip intensive and had they not been protected by The Natural Grip, who knows how they would have been able to perform. Competing at the highest level of the sport requires injury free hands and The Natural Grip was proud to have been the preferred hand protection of the 2016 CrossFit Games.
Both Ortiz and Ramirez finished their competition atop all other competitors. Congrats on the first place finish!
