DAN BAILEY

After surprisingly missing the Games last year Dan Bailey will give everything to make it to his 6th CrossFit Games. The 33year old former Division1 Sprinter won the 2015 Spirit of the Games Award and is one of the faces of this sport.

ZAK CARCHEDI

4th in the 2016 Central Regionals, he is this years 2nd in the North Central Open . After his debut at the Games last year the 24year old former collegiate football player will try to repeat his performance.

RAGNHEIÐUR SARA SIGMUNDSDOTTIR

The icelandic native is another flagship of Crossfit. After stroming to the Meridian Regional win in 2015 and finishing 3rd at her first Games, she copied her her performance in 2016 with another Regional win and 3rd place at the Games. This year she is training with no less then Rich Froning and therefore changed the Region from Meridian to Central.


BROOKE WELLS

21years old, 2 times Games veteran, first Regional win with 19.
Since 2016 she is coached by Ben Bergeron, who also coaches Mat Fraser and Katrin Davidsdottir. There is just one direction for this young Athlete – upwards.


ALEXIS RAPTIS

Only 18years old Alexis Raptis took part in the 2015 and 2016 CrossFit Games in the Teenage Division with a 4th and a 2nd place finish. She will give her debut on the big stage this year.
