I see TeamSAR as a torch. We’re the light being carried into the dark places to find those who don’t have the strength. Men, women, children, veterans…able-bodied.
I would love for someone watching Team SAR competing this year to say, I can do this too.
I hope that some kid, adult or however that is out their thinking of giving up stumbles upon not just myself but the entire team and something sparks a fuse in them to keep going and push beyond their limits.
By joining Team Some Assembly Required, he hopes to inspires others to overcome their adversities and find their passions.
Being a blade runner, Cross-Fit is something that is definitely out of my comfort zone; that’s why being Team SAT athlete means I have the privilege to explore my abilities, compete with some amazing athletes who didn’t let their difference get in their way, and show the world that we are not different – we just have more fun doing it!
Two teams of adaptive athletes are set to take the stage this year. One coed team of 6 adaptive athletes, and one all male team comprised of active duty and military veterans from the Army, Marines, and Navy.
For the first time in history a 6 person team of adaptive athletes took the floor to compete against 50 other teams of able bodied CrossFitters. No scaling, no modifications; straight up head to head competition. At the end of the day, Some Assembly Required beat out 2 full bodied teams, a team missing combined over 6 limbs beat out 2 teams of full bodied athletes proving anything is possible.
On February 6th 2016, veteran and civilian athletes from TEAM SAR will gathered in Austin, Texas in order to train and develop unique shooting methods for adaptive athletes in challenging real world scenarios. They combined fitness and firearms training to learn the fundamentals of marksmanship specific to their adaptation.
