After receiving the invite to the Special Charitable Event Honoring one of Ohio’s Hero’s Adam Hamilton, that was all we needed in order to attend.
Knowing one of CrossFit’s Super Stars was going to be there was even better.
Although she didn’t compete, it was a pleasure to meet and hang out with Julie Foucher.
Who would’ve known, just one week later, the CrossFit Community would witness this special athlete battle against her will to finish not one but 2 grueling events at our 2015 Central Regional’s with a partial achilles tear in her right leg.
It was painful to watch as she suffered through the last few events knowing the odds weren’t on her side for qualifying for the 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games.

Julie made it known that this was her last run at earning the title “FITTEST ON EARTH”… Placing 3rd in 2014 and 2nd in 2013, she was certain to make it difficult for all the competitors to win had this freak accident not occur.
If she does decide to retire, we’ll remember her always with a big smile, incredible work capacity and huge heart.
From our family at CrossFit Massillon, we wish Julie Foucher a speedy recovery as well as the best of luck as continues her medical career at the Cleveland Clinic.
