Here we go!!! This is my 8th year competing in the @crossfitgames – 5 times as an individual, 2 times as a demo (😂) and this year a new goal and new challenge – Team Reebok CrossFit One will be making a run! I love competing and excited and honored to represent @reebok this year! Go sign up and join the fun! ————————————————– @crossfit @teamrcfone @spencer_hendel @conortmurphy @kaitbrierley @rachelsimone320 @allymleard @kconn1122 #crossfit #reebok #crossfitgames #intheopen
The announcement means that the East regional’s individual leaderboard will look much different this spring. Malleolo and Hendel have been in the mix at regionals year in and year out.
