Brian Campbell is Going to the Games!



Coach Brian Campbell is going to the CrossFit Games!

This is much overdue, but we want to send the biggest congratulations to Brian Campbell for qualifying to compete at the 2019 CrossFit Games! This year the CrossFit Games are being held in Madison, WI on August 1st-4th.

The process for qualifying for the Games is long and requires a ton of hard work and dedication. In order to qualify for the Games, athletes must first compete in the CrossFit Open and come in the top 200 in their age bracket. The top 200 athletes then move on to the Age Online Qualifier, a series of five workouts completed over one weekend. At the end of the weekend, only the top ten athletes move on to the CrossFit Games.

Brian has been working toward this goal for a long time. He made it to the Age Online Qualifier in 2017 & 2018, but fell short of making it to the Games. He has been training hard over the past year, and his hard work certainly showed. This year, he had his best Open finish ever, coming in 24th in the world in the 40-44 age division. Needless to say, he was well within the Top 200 and moved on to the Age Online Qualifier again. After a weekend of extremely tough workouts, Brian landed in sixth place (in the world!), securing his first trip to the CrossFit Games!

Brian is extremely dedicated to his training, so he is ready for whatever events he will face in Madison. We are proud to have such a hard-working athlete representing CrossFit Southie on the big stage. If you see Brian in here (and chances are you will – he’s always here!) be sure to give him a big high five and a congratulations. If you are interested in supporting Brian’s trip to Madison, you can contribute here.

We will keep you posted on how you can watch all of the action out in Madison as the Games get closer. Go get ‘em, Bri!
