Meg Reardon earned an individual invite to the CrossFit Games after winning the Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge in April. And then last weekend, Reardon joined Invictus Boston at the French Throwdown. Invictus Boston won the final Sanctional of the year, earning an invite to Games.
That left Reardon with the decision of going to the CrossFit Games as an individual or on a team. Reardon made her decision over the weekend and has elected to compete as an individual.
“While it wasn’t the easiest decision to make, I ultimately chose that I needed to put my fitness to the test and compete as an individual at the 2019 CrossFit Games,” said Reardon in an Instagram post.

This year has been a roller coaster. The changes to the CrossFit season have allowed me to compete on the highest stages all over the world, grow my business, meet some amazing people and create new friendships. Going into this year, I didn’t have much intention to compete as an individual, but I decided to go for it at the @midatlanticcrossfitchallenge. After having an amazing weekend and earning a spot to the CrossFit Games, I realized my fitness has only been improving since getting on board with @forgedbyzeus. I started to understand how much fun I was having enjoying the journey not only on the competition floor, but also inside the gym every day. • As the season went on I had the opportunity to be a part of an AMAZING team that got to travel, see some incredible places, and ultimately also earn a spot at the CrossFit Games. The energy competing with them all season made me feel alive and pushed me to work harder and get better. • As the season progressed, I’ve only felt more and more confident in my abilities to compete on the highest stage. While it wasn’t the easiest decision to make, I ultimately chose that I needed to put my fitness to the test and compete as an individual at the 2019 CrossFit Games. I cannot wait to head out to Madison and show just how much I’ve improved since 2016. Let’s do this. 🤘🏼🦈 // #enjoythejourney #wagsandweights #crossfitgames #forgedbyzeus #sharkszn
Reardon finished 97th in the CrossFit Open and is ranked 44th entering the Games.
As for Invictus Boston, Kelsey Kiel, Tola Morakinyo and Craig Kenney now have the task of finding another female to take the place of Reardon. In Kiel’s Instagram stories this weekend, Stephanie Chung was seen working out with the team. Chung currently lives in the Boston area and would be a good fit for the team.
