WODstock Ambassador 2016 - Brent Fikowski
Hailing from Canada, Brent Fikowski actually began his CrossFit journey at CrossFit Broadbeach while studying in Australia. While Brent won the inaugural WODstock series, it was his spirit that captured the hearts of us Aussies even more so than his athleticism. Brent brought a genuine concern and care for each person he came across, whether judging, competing or just standing beside on the sidelines. We are honoured that Brent has chosen to join our team for the 2015/16 season, and can't wait to see him on our shores again.
Bio - Brent Fikowski
I have always been a competitive athlete that finds joy in the pursuit of personal improvement. When I moved from Canada to Australia to finish my university degree in 2012 I joined CrossFit Broadbeach. After surprising myself with a top 5 placing at my first individual competition I decided to change my competitive athletic focus to CrossFit.
One of the first events I attended was the inaugural season of WODstock events. They helped shape me into an athlete that was mentally and physically ready to tackle the 2013 Open and Regionals.
I loved the added outdoor elements of heat, sunshine, rain and wind. Some of the events we did still stand as the toughest and most gruelling WODs I have ever competed in. "The 200m classic" chipper in the heat at Ipswich had me dizzy for an hour. The track triplet test of strength, power and speed at the Broadbeach Bash is still one of my favourite events. I frequently describe that event to my non-CrossFit friends. As well as the sandbag beep test. A simple and effective test that I wish was emulated more often.
I still cherish the memories I have with WODstock and I am very excited to be promoting these events and the cause that they stand for.
