1:24 Last year, Abbott finished first at the Canada West Regional but said she wasn’t prepared for the CrossFit Games. In 2015, she’s confident she can better her 35th-place finish in Carson, California. The athlete from Alberta talked about the last year of training, touching on volume, intensity and how she makes sure her training doesn’t detract from the regular classes at CrossFit Currie Barracks.
11:05 At 19 years of age, Wells is the Central Regional champion—though she said she didn’t realize winning was actually a possibility until the second day of competition. Wells talked about her fitness background and how she was able to find such impressive success at such a young age, and she explained how she was inspired to see training partner Julie Foucher courageously continuing to compete after an injury. With the CrossFit Games about six weeks away, Wells explained how she’ll prepare so she can live up to her potential.
