2007 Femsport
Fitness & Strength Competition
(February 24, 2007)

Valerie Tosoff with Nancy Lockington
Starting out the year with a fun competition, Part 1 of this year's Femsport featured fitness and strength events only and took place at Level 10 Fitness in North Vancouver. Some favorites from the past included previous winners Emma Callaghan and Roseanne Desmarais. Shawn Tan used her overwhelming strength to good advantage in the Tug 'O War but the real decider at this competition was between Roseanne and 'rookie' Valerie Tosoff. What worked out great was being pitted head to head in a number of events, motivating each other to excel. In a perfect example of form following function, Valerie not only is a well conditioned athlete but looked the part as well - I did notice that early on :) My thanks to JP, Nancy and the whole crew for putting on an outstanding event. More coverage and official results will be found at Femsport.TV.
