With only six more days until the 2015 Reebok CrossFit Invitational, Team USA has a new athlete on its team. Rich Froning, the coach of Team USA, will replace Ben Smith due to injury. Froning will join Dan Bailey, Margaux Alvarez and Chyna Cho on Team USA.
No word on the extent of Ben Smith’s injury at this time. Just two weeks ago, Ben posted a 370# clean and jerk during the 2015 CrossFit Liftoff presented by Rogue Fitness.
Ben Smith has to withdraw from Team USA and the Invitational in Spain next week due to injury. Rich Froning will step in and take his position on Team USA alongside Dan Bailey Margaux Alvarez and Chyna Cho. @bsmit13 @richfroning @CrossFit #CrossFit @CrossFitGames #CrossFitGames #CrossFitinvitational
