Regionals 1st Weekend Recap: Bailey Out. Khan is a legend!

The first Weekend of The Regionals (California, South, Pacific) is over now and has brought some huge surprises! Read more about the performance of the top Regional athletes and who made it to the Games and what happened.

PACIFIC REGIONAL

Australia + Asia
Wollongong, Australia

The Pacific region which covers New Zealand, Australia, Asia and the Pacific Islands had 28,000 people compete in the online qualifier, but only 260 men and women have made it to the top.

The Pacific Regionals were settled by the two Games veterans Kara Webb and Rob Forte. Kara set such a current record for Event 1, no women even came within 1 minute of her result! While Rob won event 4 and 6, it was the 3rd placed Khan Porter who delivered the most astonishing performance.

Next to the veterans, this Year´s Pacific Regionals qualifiers were made up of new kids on the block. 50 percent of the qualified individuals are rookies.

JUSTINE BEATH

Starting CrossFit in 2009, the 25year old from CrossFit Lower Mountains in Penrith, New South Wales, she has taken part in every Pacific Regional since.

This year she obtains her Games Ticket with six Top 10 results, even reaching 2nd in Events 2 and 5 which pushed her to the 4th place overall on the Leaderboard.

MADELINE STURT

The 19year old from CrossFit Newcastle definitively earned some respect this Weekend. Coming from a track-and-field background no one had her on the plan until she smashed unbroken Deadlifts in Event 5 which brought her into the Top 10. She convinced even the last doubters with her rope climbs in the final event, which took her to 5th place overall.
