Yes, Ben Smith, the defending champion, is going back to the CrossFit Games, but there is another Smith knocking on the door. Chandler Smith, a Regional athlete rookie, has been the story line the past two days. With four top 10 finishes so far, Chandler Smith is only one point out of the top 5.

With 10 CrossFit Games veterans in the Atlantic field, no one will be going down without a fight. The 3rd and 4th heats are stacked and are must watch this afternoon.
