One of CrossFit’s most formidable and consistent performers, Cole Sager, a nine-time Games athlete, honed his competitive edge on the gridiron, playing four years at the University of Washington as a running back and special teams player. When his football days were finally behind him in 2013, Sager needed a new type of athletic challenge. A friend suggested he try his hand at CrossFit, and the rest was history. After qualifying for his first Regionals within months of entering the sport, Cole started moving up the ranks as he honed his craft. He won the Northwest Regional in 2014 and has qualified for every Games since, notching Top 10 finishes in 2015 (7th), 2016 (5th), and 2018 (7th). He also reached the podium (3rd overall) at the inaugural Rogue Invitational in 2019. Widely regarded for his high character and positive attitude within the CrossFit community, Cole was awarded the “Spirit of the Games” honor in 2017, showing the level of respect he commands from his fellow athletes.
