Pichelli Enters Day Two In Third At Reebok CrossFit Games

Former Saint Mary’s rower Alessandra Pichelli (’09) will be right in the thick of things at the Reebok CrossFit Games when they resume Friday, as the Northern California champion sits in third place overall in the Individual Women division.

Pichelli, who recently won the Northern California CrossFit title in Santa Rosa, began competition on Wednesday in Carson, Calif. After finishing eighth in the pool event, she moved to the erg machine and made her move up the leader board. Pichelli placed third in the first heat, 12th in the second and vaulted to third overall.

Friday’s action features three more disciplines, only two of which — Burden Run and ZigZag Sprint — the competitors know ahead of time. The third discipline will be announced later today.

The CrossFit Games are being streamed live by ESPN3.com, with all three women’s disciplines set to air live on Friday. Pichelli’s first event of the day, the Burden Run, is scheduled to start at 10:15 a.m.
