We are four weeks away from the start of the CrossFit Games and it appears that Dave Castro is in full swing programming the events. This afternoon Castro shared a photo of four athletes at The Ranch.

In the photo are Meredith Root, Alex Parker, Dylan Martin and it appears to be Marquan Jones. Root is holding Castro’s puppy, Doug, while the other three are working on Concept2 rowers.

For years, Castro has utilized athletes who have not qualified for the Games that season to help him with testing and fine tuning events for the CrossFit Games. Root, Parker and Jones are all Games veterans while Martin is a perennial Regional athlete.
