The guys accepting their team trophy
Considered underdogs to medal as a team, the guys all performed PRs (personal records), and worked as a team in order to seize the opportunity to take home a team trophy.
Each one of these guy's performance was absolutely critical to achieving this team accomplishment.
Great job guys !!
It's all fun and games until, ... well, it's still fun and games, ... but with an edge
