Lauren Smith and Tommy Marquez join Sean Woodland to share why you don’t want to miss these athletes in action.


Jeff Adler → North America East Semifinal
All eyes will be on Adler to see if he can repeat his Semifinal win AND defend his title as CrossFit Games champion. 

Victor Hoffer → Europe Semifinal
Hoffer made a name for himself at last year’s Europe Semifinal after winning a gymnastics-heavy event and taking second in the final. This year, he finished 21st worldwide in the Open and heads to his second Individual Semifinal after placing second in Europe in Quarterfinals. 

Dallin Pepper → North America East Semifinal
Since placing fifth at last year’s CrossFit Games, Pepper — the most decorated teenage athlete in CrossFit Games history – has been working on his weaknesses and is ready to give Adler a run for his money at Semifinals. Will he stand on the podium at the end of the season?

Bayley Martin → Ocean Semifinal
Martin has been steadily improving over the years and is having his best season yet. After taking second in the 2023 Oceania Semifinal and qualifying for his first individual Games appearance, he’s itching to get back and beat his 12th-place finish.
