2017 Championship Highlights – Here’s what you missed!

By November 10, 2017 November 13th, 2017 GameDay Championship

The equipment is packed up, the crowds gone, athletes are (hopefully) recovered and we are already planning GameDay Eau Claire but to be honest, we are still riding the high of the 2017 GameDay Championship in St. Paul. We had some new competitors that blew us away with their grit and determination. We had some returning athletes who took the stage again as back to back champions and podium finishers. We had some truly inspiring adaptive athletes who competed in the finale and stole the stage with their heart and drive to push themselves beyond any limits and of course we had some athletes who competed for the first time ever and got the bug to come back for round two! We loved every minute of it and could not have asked for a better crowd, better volunteers or a better group of athletes. Here are the top finishers of the weekend!
