Rachel Martinez dislocated her elbow during 17.3 of the CrossFit Open. Martinez, a member of Reebok CrossFit One, posted one rep on the following two Open workouts. While surgery was not required, Martinez was preparing to not compete with her team at the East Regional.

Fast forward almost two months and Martinez is making a strong comeback. Last week Martinez did her first ring muscle-ups since the injury. And yesterday, Martinez was able to snatch without any pain.

With recovery going smoothly it appears we will see Martinez alongside teammates Austin Malleolo and Spencer Hendel. The East Regional is the first weekend and begins May 19 in Albany, New York.
