Two weeks down, one to go.
Sunday concluded the second set of the 2018 CrossFit Games Regionals groups, and there was no shortage of excitement. From a Latin America Regional that almost didn’t happen to an historic CrossFit Games accomplishment by Rebecca Voigt, this weekend was packed with excitement.
For week two, we got to see the West, Cental, and Latin America athletes throw down in hopes of qualifying for the 2018 CrossFit Games. A ton of familiar names topped the leaderboard for both the men and women, but Mat Fraser’s first place finishes across the board was potentially one of the most impressive performances from the weekend.
