Cole Sager West Coast Classic Results
Cole Sager

Brandon Luckett will be going to his 3rd CrossFit Games, but it sure did not look like it after the first workout was over. He finished Reg Snatch Lad ’16 in 22nd, but made a huge comeback on the subsequent workouts and even winning event 5 Reg Finale ’17.

Will Moorad is another athlete who made headlines by finishing Push Pull 2.0 ’14 event in under 8 minutes, 50 seconds ahead of second-place Noah Ohlsen. On that same event, Cole Sager finished 0.04 seconds ahead of Spencer Panchik, who pushed to his limits to get a Last-Chance Qualifier invitation.

On the other hand, Tola Morakinyo started strong with an event 1 win 40 seconds ahead of the 2nd place. Things turned sour for the athlete when he finished last in the Ruck Run 2.0 ’19 and ended the weekend 11 points shy of getting into the Last-Chance Qualifier.

Bethany Shadburne

The women’s leaderboard was closer with Bethany Shadburne shinning over 2020’s 3rd Fittest Woman on Earth Kari Pearce. Shadburne won two events and had top four finishes in all other events, until the last workout where she finished 9th.

Dani Speegle almost saw her plans of qualifying for the CrossFit Games shattered on Saturday. That is because the medical team pulled her out of the Ruck Sack event due to heat exhaustion and she did not finish the final lap. Hours later, she would finish 5th the next event and win the next won in a showdown next to Danielle Brandon.
