I've been active in many team sports throughout my life, playing soccer, hockey, volleyball and rugby. I first started Crossfit in March 2012, but had a few injury setbacks. Since rehabbing my back about 6 months ago, I've been steadily increasing my skill and strength and am really looking forward to my first open competition in 2014
