One down, two to go.
The first weekend of the 2018 CrossFit® Games Regionals competition has come and gone, and we now have the first 15 individual competitors for the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games.
This past weekend hosted three Games qualifiers which included the East, South, and Europe Regional groups. Going into the competition, many speculated about the bench press and handstand obstacles, and they both lived up to their expectations. The handstand obstacle course without a doubt proved to be the most difficult for athletes.
Who came out on top?
Familiar names top the leaderboard for both the men and women, but also some relatively new names have staked their claim to the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games. Below we’ve attached the top five male and female athletes from each Regional, along with the top five teams.
The East Regional was a little different this year and lacked a couple of its normal big named athletes. Mat Fraser normally competes in the East, but has since moved into the Midwest Region, and James Hobart had to withdraw due to a broken foot.
