On November 10th CompWOD’s Best of the Best competition featured some of Canada East’s finest CrossFit athletes. The virtually unknown Charles Felx-Leduc was one of 5 men to earn a wildcard chance to battle against 15 invited athletes from the Region. By the end of the evening he had gained the attention of the crowd by casually jerking 315 lbs 8 times in 30 seconds. A few moments later he proved he was someone to watch for, completing “Grace” in 1 minute 16 seconds.

Hailing from Reebok Crossfit YUL in Montreal, Charles had only been CrossFitting for two months when he entered the online open qualifier for the 2012 Games last February. Aided by a background in Strongman he finished 38th in the Open overall, including a first place finish in the snatch ladder. It was obvious he was capable of moving some serious mass. But spectators were deprived of watching Felx-Leduc handle the heavy weights at the Canada East Regional qualifier when he was bested by “Diane”; unable to complete the minimum required 21 handstand pushups, Felx-Leduc was cut from the competition. Since then, he has certainly addressed this particular weakness; as part of his bid to qualify for Best of the Best, Charles completed 76 handstand pushups in 10 minutes.

With a first place finish this past August at the Delli Fraine competition in Montreal, Quebec already knew Felx-Leduc could be a challenger at this year’s Games. With his outstanding performance at Best of the Best, Ontario now knows it too.
