Samuel Kwant has announced he will withdraw from the 2018 CrossFit Regionals, thereby ending his 2018 CrossFit Games season. Kwant, nicknamed Turbo Baby, has made it to the CrossFit Games the last two years.
Kwant has been dealing with a lingering knee injury and announced late last night that he was going to shut it down for the season and focus on the 2019 season.
Kwant finished 2nd in the new West Coast region during the Open this season. The extent of Kwant’s injury is unknown at this time, but he is planning to recover and then begin focusing on next season.
