On to the Games: 2018 CrossFit Games Regionals Week 3 Recap

With this weekend’s epic conclusion, we now know who’s officially moving on the to 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games in Madison, Wisconsin.

It seems like only yesterday the 2018 CrossFit Open was kicking off, and now we’ve already made it through the three CrossFit Games qualifying Regionals weekends. This year, there were more than a handful of legendary performances, and fortunately, we didn’t see many occasions of injuries or setbacks.

This weekend’s CrossFit Regionals groups came in the form of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Meridian divisions. These three groups were loaded with weathered and elite athletes, so each group was a showdown until the very final day.

For those who missed our first two week’s recaps and who topped their divisions, then you can check them out below.
