Marcus Hendren made his debut placing seventh at the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games. Hendren, of Central East, has always been active, playing baseball and basketball in high school, as well as football at Cornell. The 23-year-old competitor grew up on a dairy farm in Johnston, Ohio. He continues to split his days between training and working on his family farm, often rising at 4:30 a.m. and not getting to bed until later than 9:30 p.m.
The 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games will re-air on ESPN2 starting Dec. 16.
