Excerpt from the Omaha World-Herald
Sheila Barden didn’t just believe she was going to win the Central Regional CrossFit title last month in Columbus, Ohio — she knew she was going to win.
Barden, who trains at CrossFit Kinesis in Gretna, took home the top spot in the women’s open division at the regional event and qualified for the Reebok CrossFit Games July 19-24 in Carson, Calif.
It was the first regional title for the 28-year old from Omaha as she will be making her second trip to the CrossFit Games.
