USA Weightlifting and USRowing have partnered with the CrossFit Games to offer Talent Identification Combines at the South, Central and Atlantic Regionals. The Combine is meant to find and recruit new talent for Olympic Weightlifting and Rowing.

The Combine will feature tests such as a vertical jump, standing broad jump, max snatch, max clean & jerk, a 10-second max-watt row (Brian Shaw anyone?) and a 1-min row. Prizes will also be awarded to the top performers in 17 & Under, 20 & Under and 21+ age groups.

Spectators at these three Regionals can test their skills any of the three days during the weekend.
