Hershey, Wagner & Shogun CrossFit are headed to California.
The last day of the Asia Regional has seen extraordinary feats of strength and spirit from all those competing in Seoul. The support from the spectators reached new heights, with those in the audience all too aware of what was at stake. Though CrossFit may be considerably lesser known throughout Asia than it is perhaps in the States or Australia, one couldn’t have guessed it. The smiles, sweat, tears and emotional highs and lows just go to show that CrossFit is making its mark here in Asia.
Despite not taking a top 3 position in the final event, Daniel Hershey will advance to the Games, having put on a stellar performance throughout the last three days. He expressed his gratitude for the support from his wife, athlete Sarabeth Hershey (ranked 5th), friends and CrossFit Misawa. When asked what had kept him going throughout the Regional, his reply was simple: “I don’t like to lose.”
