#TeamPrimal aka DjMaeFlex took the wild card spot for the upcoming Manila Throwdown Team Edition - Finals. Being a wild card entry, Dj, Mae and Jp could not hide their excitement for the competition to be held on November 5, 2016 at the Acacia Estates.

It took me by surprise that we actually qualify as a wildcard team. Finally, I am going to compete again but this time with my teammates. Being in the Finals reminds me why I do what I do, and it brings back that burning desire to get after it again” said Mae.

When it comes to competitive sports, Dj is not a newbie anymore. With Mae and Jp on his team, he is positive that they will surprise people during the competition.

“Mae, in my honest opinion, is one of the strongest female competitors in the scaled division, I had the privilege to train with. Don't let her size fool you, she has a big engine and packs serious power!” said Dj.

“JP is a grinder. Day in and day out, he strives to do his best no matter what the WOD is.  His steady improvements speak truth about his enviable athleticism. A young gun and an example of what anyone can achieve with hard work and dedication to this sport.” Dj continued.

JP aka Jflex, the youngest in the group has this to say: “I highly respect my teammates because they have years of experience ahead of me. They're stronger and faster than me and I hoped that my training helped so we can perform our best as a strong team.”

“There's no way I'm letting you guys down! To my fellow box mates: Our win is Primal Ape's win. We train to make you guys proud Let's make Primal Ape Proud!” said JP.
