After starting CrossFit in 2013 Alex Vigneault surprised everyone by finishing first at the Open in 2014. He trained in his parents’ garage throughout the summer of 2013, self-coaching his way to his first regional appearance in 2014 at the Canada East Regional, where he missed Games qualification by one place and a tiebreaker at that. He made his Games debut in 2015.
As a former hockey player he says “Working out has always been a part of my life. I have always loved high-intensity sports where I have to push my limits.”
