To know Ben is to understand what an incredibly humble and truly kind person he is. He is a talented coach and an understated but fierce competitor. He has qualified for one of the upcoming “Sanctionals” being held in Iceland May 3 to May 5. The Reykjavik CrossFit Championship will be held in Iceland's national sports arena, Laugardalshöll. This three-day event is one of the 15 CrossFit SanctionalsTM competitions, and that means that first-place winners will secure invitations to the CrossFitGames!
Ben is one of the few Games athletes who has a full-time job outside of a CrossFit affiliate. A long time employee at our local, Costo in Eugene, Oregon, Ben quietly goes about getting his workouts in before work or in the evening after a long day on his feet. It is mind-blowing that he is so successful while diligently trying to find balance between family, training and work!
The new qualifying format for the CrossFit Games presents some real financial challenges for an athlete that is not a full-time athlete with sponsorship money funding all-day training sessions. Ben has flight expenses, food, lodging, and entry fees along with missing a full week of work in order to compete. Our goal is to raise $5,000.00 to help fund Ben in his quest to qualify for the 2019 CrossFit Games! Let’s rally behind this exceptional human being and help send him to Iceland to represent Oregon and the USA with a little financial support from all of his friends!
