The competition floor at the 2015 South Regional was reminiscent of the CrossFit Games, with many big names in the field. The biggest story was perhaps 2014 Games champ Camille Leblanc-Bazinet’s move from Canada to Colorado, putting her in the South.

Another transplant on the women’s side, three-time Games qualifier Margaux Alvarez, moved from Northern California to Texas earlier this year. All eyes were on the two women as Alvarez ended Day 1 in first before giving way to Leblanc-Bazinet on Day 2.

On the men’s side, former Games athlete Roy Gamboa kick-started his weekend with second- and first-place finishes. After missing the Games at last year’s South Central Regional, Gamboa said he’d been working his weaknesses and was ready to tackle the competition.

An event record was set at the South Regional when Amanda Goodman crushed Event 7—the muscle-up/clean ladder—in 1:21 flat.

The South Regional will send four rookies—Travis Williams, Adrian Conway (a two-time Affiliate Cup champion with Hack’s Pack Ute), Maddy Myers and Chad Cole—and six vets—Gamboa, Jordan Cook, Leblanc-Bazinet, Alvarez, Goodman and Jenn Jones—to this year’s individual competition at the CrossFit Games.
