Chris Spealler has yet to decide if he will try to qualify for next year’s CrossFit Games. Time, he said, is what’s holding him back. His wife, meanwhile, wants him to compete again. Andréa Maria Cecil reports.
About a week after the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games ended, Sarah Spealler texted her husband’s coach, Ben Bergeron.
“Let's make a machine! I'll feed him you train him! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Bergeron, co-owner and head coach at CrossFit New England, replied 15 minutes later: “This is one of the best text(s) I have ever received. We'll tag team him and he won't even know what happened.”
Sarah’s husband, the iconic Chris Spealler, had said 2012 would be his last CrossFit Games.
But when the couple left California to go home to Utah, Sarah didn’t much like the idea.
