In the California Region the ladies race was intense. The leaderboard was all over the place and some big names looked like they weren't going to be making it back to the games. The most impressive parts of the weekend came from some CrossFit Legends Kristan Clever and Rebecca Voigt. Kristan Clever hasn't been to the cames in at least a couple years but she took 1st in two events and was in the top heat for most of the weekend. Rebecca Voigt proved that she is the definition of fitness by qualifying for her 9th CrossFit Games in a row! She will probably be the only person to ever do that!

 Rebecca Voigt is going to the games for the ninth time!

A couple of big names didn't make it from California as well, most notably Brooke Ence and Dan Bailey. We are all very sad that Danny Broflex will not be at the CrossFit Games this year
:(

For the guys, Josh Bridges stole the show! He went from not qualifying last year to taking the winning spot this time around. He was fun to watch the whole weekend and wasn't going to take no for an answer!

 Josh Bridges wasn't messing around!
