The Story in North East

By Ian Wittenber

Video Article

The North East Regional was all about community.

“Nothing compares to the camaraderie, relying on each other, working together to win,” said CrossFit Brickyard team member Seth St Amand.

One of the best parts about being an athlete at regionals is the support from your box or fellow competitors, said 2014 Games qualifier Sheila Barden.
