2015 CrossFit Games Champion Ben Smith Featured in ‘Playing for Eternity’ Documentary Series

Ben Smith won the CrossFit Games in 2015 and qualified for the Games a record-breaking 11 consecutive years from 2009 to 2019. And while he has not qualified for the Games the past three seasons, it appears he will be looking to compete again this year.

Ben was recently featured in the Angel Studios documentary series, Playing for Eternity, where he shares his story of motivation, inspiration and how faith has played a part in his athletic career.

The host, Josh Merrill, visits Ben at CrossFit Krypton where he is put through a short CrossFit workout before they sit down and chat about Ben’s faith. When asked about when Ben began to own his faith, he said it was within the past four or five years. “I just said one day that I’m going to read the Bible cover-to-cover.”

Smith continued by discussing what changed in his life, “Little things would bother me and I’m learning to just be at peace and hold on to joy and hope throughout. It’s just changed me internally and that changed things externally as well.”
