Help the SUBIONO BOYZ Chase WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
The SUBIONO BOYZ are chasing WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP in the Sport of Fitness this Summer!
The CrossFit Games is more than a sport for these young men from Hawai'i. It's their passion, profession and what God's called them to do.
Elijah (17), Ka'eo (15) and Kulani (14) are brothers and the eldest of five children in the Subiono 'Ohana. They are currently residing in Austin, TX.
Elijah and Ka'eo are both RETURNING to the CrossFit Games for the second year in a row. They're in the same division but older, faster, and stronger!
- Elijah is ranked 6th out of 1900 athletes worldwide in the 16-17 Teen Division.
- Ka'eo is ranked 2nd out of 1500 athletes worldwide in the 14-15 Teen Division.
- Kulani is ranked 17th; he competed alongside Ka'eo in the same division.
Sadly, there was a rule change this year, and only the Top 10 athletes earned a spot to compete at the CrossFit Games.
Last year they took the Top 20. Therefore, Kulani won't be competing but will be there to support his brothers and teammates.
For the record, Kulani was the highest ranking 14-year-old in his division. That means he finished this season as the "Fittest 14yo on Earth" Congrats Kulani!
As for Elijah and Ka'eo, they still have the biggest battle of the year ahead of them.
Every year, only the top-ranked athletes earn the opportunity to compete in the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP of this sport known as the CrossFit Games.
The Games are coming up fast, and the SUBIONO BOYZ need your help. It's all going down in Madison, WI, on August 4-6.
Elijah and Ka'eo will take on the best teenage CrossFitters on the planet. They'll fight through several grueling events that will test them physically, mentally and emotionally.
They'll go DEEP into the PAIN CAVE as they fight for a coveted podium spot. When all the dust settles, the Fittest Teens on Earth will be crowned!
This is an opportunity of a lifetime and Elijah's last year in the Teen Division. Next year he'll compete with the big dawgs.
IT'S GO TIME!

Elijah, Ka'eo and Kulani are full-time athletes training 4-6 hours a day. The rest of their time is spent in their homeschool business curriculum at CrossFit 2222 in Austin, TX.
They coach classes, manage the gym and study Leadership, Finance, Sales, Marketing, Operations, Customer Service and Product
Elijah gravitates toward Leadership and will eventually grow into the Head Coach role at the gym. Recently he's discovered a love for personal training and enjoys breaking down the technical moves for his clients like the Clean & Jerk and Snatch.
Elijah will be 18 in late October and is 100% ready to take on adulthood!
Ka'eo is also a strong leader and a natural with sales and marketing. He will eventually grow into the General Manager position at CrossFit 2222.
On another note, Ka'eo is getting really good at smoking brisket, ribs and pulled pork, Texas style! So good; he sold a ton of the stuff this year to help with fundraising.
Kulani is more soft-spoken but has an entrepreneurial mind and a knack for business numbers. One day he'll be our controller at the gym.
These young men have worked extremely hard since they were little kids, taking CrossFit Kids Classes at CrossFit East O'ahu and CrossFit West O'ahu.
In the past three years, the Subiono Boyz have refined their craft with extraordinary precision and detail with one simple goal in mind, WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP.
This opportunity is a dream come true, but it's only the beginning of a lifelong journey of athletic and business mastery.
None of this would be possible without fans, supporters, mentors and sponsors like yourself who have been following their journey for so many years!
WARMEST MAHALO & ALOHA,
-Elijah, Ka'eo, Kulani & The Subiono 'Ohana.
