After finishing in second place in the 16-17 year old teen division at the CrossFit Games in 2016, our very own George Sterner completed his first Open in the Individual Rx category with a 4th place finish in the North Central region, earning him a trip to Nashville next weekend for the Central Regional. In addition to his finish in the Region, his performance was good enough to finish in 1st place for the State of Illinois and 18th place worldwide!
Over the past year George has been rigorously training in preparation for this event and we couldn’t be more proud or excited to see him compete against a field of extremely fit athletes.
CrossFit Games Central Regional details:
The 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games Central Regional features the fittest men, women, and teams from the North Central and Central East of the United States. Only the top-40 men, 40 women, and 30 6-person teams were invited to compete at the Central Regional.
Over the course of the three-day weekend, the athletes will face a barrage of tests designed to reveal any flaws in their fitness. Can they do well in long events? Short events? Heavy lifting? Gymnastics? To make it to the Games, these athletes must be true generalists capable of handling any task thrown at them.
The five men, five women, and five teams who do the best in relation to their peers across all of the events will be invited to compete at the CrossFit Games held at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin, Aug. 3-6.
