British-born Elliot Simmonds qualified for the European Regionals in 2014 less than a year after starting the sport. Now he is a 3-times regional athlete. He competed in the team event with the hugely-successful CrossFit Yas. Alongside athletes Jamie Green and Tammy Robinson, Yas stormed to second place in the Meridian Regional to qualify for the 2015 CrossFit Games.
#tb to the one successful lift I hit at the 265 barbell. This is the first time I’d hit this weight since regionals last year and as happy as I clearly am, I’m also disappointed that I didn’t go on to finish the workout with some near misses. If you want to be successful at anything in life you can’t afford to be satisfied, there’s always something you can improve! #happy #notsatisfied #wantmore #getmore #theopen #crossfitgames #crossfit @crossfitgames
