Regionals this Weekend

Okay, maybe you’re still bummed you missed out on tickets for The 2013 CrossFit Games in July.  I know, they sold out pretty quickly, and you’re not about to shell out $500 to a scalper for tickets.  Sucks for sure.  But here’s the good news, the Southern California CrossFit Games Regional competition kicks off this Friday and runs through the weekend.

The Regional competition is the penultimate phase of the CrossFit Games competition season, and we have some of the best athletes in the CrossFit world competing in our region this weekend.  Here are a few athletes to watch at the Regional:

Josh Bridges, second place at the 2011 CrossFit Games, is the top male in our region and has a legitimate shot at beating Rich Froning this year at the Games.

Kenneth Leverich finished 17th at last year’s CrossFit Games.  This guy is a beast.  Check out this video of him doing a WOD called Godzilla.

Kris Clever needs no introduction.  4th place in 2009, 1st place in 2010, 2nd place in 2011, 4th place in 2012…this gal is one of the best.

Andrea Ager is well known in the SoCal region and is hungry to make it to the big show as an individual competitor.  

The 2013 Southern California CrossFit Games Regional is May 17th, 18th, and 19th at the Del Mar Fairground, just north of San Diego.  Single day tickets are $15.
