This year we are very excited to welcome 5-time Games athlete (with 2 podium finishes!), Valerie Voboril to the competition.

Val is one of those competitors you can’t help but love, with her sweet smile she captures the crowds attention with her swift moves and top finishes. This will be her first time competing at the ECC, and if we see pullups programmed into the workouts, keep an eye on her!

“I LOVE pull ups and would be thrilled to see those programmed!”



But what do we think will actually be programmed? It’s a mystery still!  What did Val think when a box showed up on her doorstep?

“Yes, Chocolate! Was the first thing I thought when I got my golden ticket, then I started thinking – what wild and weird events Willy Wonka aka Ben Bergeron had planned.”

One of the neat things about the ECC is that it attracts the top athletes of the sport, very similar faces we see in Carson, and throughout Regionals. It is almost reunion-like for athletes who competed together in the summer.

” I am excited for snow, meeting and competing with amazing people, and seeing our East Coast family.”

Welcome to the ECC family Val!
