I don’t often act like a 14-year-old at a Justin Bieber concert, but when I do, I look like a fool. Which is exactly what happened yesterday at RAID GAMES 4 in Deerfield Beach, Florida when I turned around and saw Gabriele “The Tigress” Schlicht roaming around the arena.

OMG! I ran and got my camera and of course she was more than Me Gaby gracious – albeit probably a little embarrassed by my enthusiasm.

For those of you who skipped the Masters competition portion of the Crossfit Games last month, Schlict was the winner of the Women’s 55-59 Division. And it wasn’t the first time she won her division either.

She wore her medal and I’m glad she did. “OMG! Is this your medal?” I asked. “Can I touch it?”

I’m such an asshole sometimes.

I’m glad she wore her medal so the younger athletes can see what the world’s top 57-year-old female athlete looks like. Crossfit has no age and Schlict looks awesome. Schlict owns Crossfit Deerfield Beach and she was more concerned and proud of the four teams representing her box than she was about the medal around her neck.

As for my own performance yesterday, let’s just say I sucked. But today is redemption day and I intend to kick ass.
