Trinity Sport CrossFit coach Jamie Headon wins ticket to the CrossFit Games 2020 with Elite Team ‘The Program’

Published: February 27th, 2020

C2F and Trinity Sport CrossFit coach Jamie Headon has won a coveted ticket to the Crossfit games 2020 after winning the Norwegian CrossFit Championship with his elite team ‘The Progrm’. Elite teams fought for the top spot at the Norwegian CrossFit Championship during three epic days of competition and eight testing events, with Jamie’s team ‘The Progrm’ winning the team event.
The Norwegian CrossFit Championship saw athletes take on a ski slope for a winter run, test a three-rep max front squat and complete 5,000m on a C2 bike, with alternating row and ski-erg calories every three minutes.

Team Elite:
The competition throughout the weekend was between ‘The Program’ and ‘The Athlete Program’. Just over ten points separated the two teams going into the final day of competition, which only had two events in store.
‘The Athlete Program’ won the first event of the day, but ‘the Progrm’ finished second and went on to win the final event of the competition. With ‘The Athlete Program’ finishing second on the last event, the margin between the two teams remained the same at the end of the competition and ‘The Program’ took gold, beating ‘The Athlete Program’ by 13 points.
‘The Progrm’, comprised of 2019 Games athlete Joshua Wichtrup, 2017 Regionals athlete Jamie Headon, 2018 Games team member Matilde Garnes and top Swedish athlete Ella Wunger, have only been together for a couple of months. The team competed at the Filthy 150, where they were runners up, and have applied the lessons learnt from that close victory at the Norwegian CrossFit Championship. The team has now won the invitation to the 2020 CrossFit Games.

Final leader board:

  • 1. The Progrm
  • 2. The Athlete Program
  • 3. Team Finland
  • 4. CrossFit Oslo Warriors
  • 5. Team RXPerformance
