A couple of big names didn't qualify from this Region. Adrian Conway and Elijah Muhammad both made it to the Games last year but were not able to make it this time around.

The highlight in this Region for me was when they announced the men who had qualified for the Games. Joseph Guesnier, somebody who I had not heard of before, was the last athlete announced as qualifying and he looked dumbfounded. All the other athletes were getting emotional and excited when their names were called but he just looked confused and almost mad, like he didn't know what was going on. It was hilarious!

On the ladies side, other than Camile Leblanc-Bazinet, most everybody else is relatively unknown. I believe all the other qualifiers will be Crossfit Games rookies, which is interesting!
