Behind the Scenes: ’17 Meridian Regional – Journal Preview



Log in to the CrossFit Journal for the full 90-minute feature: https://journal.crossfit.com/article/cfj-behind-the-scenes-17-meridian-regional The second stage of the CrossFit Games season turns neighbors into nemeses as the best athletes from each region compete for a chance to test their mettle on the world stage. In 2017, each Regional’s competitors put on a hell of a show every time they took the floor, but what went on behind the scenes was also fit for prime time, and CrossFit Media Director Sevan Matossian was there to capture it all. This year’s Meridian Regional took place at the Caja Mágica in Madrid, Spain. The event was stacked with top veteran athletes including 2013 Games champion Sam Briggs, and two-time Games victor Annie Thorisdottir on the women’s side. In the men’s field, 2015 third-place Games finisher Björgvin Karl Guðmundsson would battle against 2015 Meridian Regional champion Jonne Koski, who was looking to reclaim his title after being forced to withdraw from the Games due to injury in 2016. On the competition floor, it was all business, but on the sidelines athletes experienced every emotion imaginable throughout their quests to get to the CrossFit Games.

Behind the Scenes: ’17 East Regional – Journal Preview



Log in to the CrossFit Journal for the full 90-minute feature: https://journal.crossfit.com/article/cfj-behind-the-scenes-17-east-regional The second stage of the CrossFit Games season turns neighbors into nemeses as the best athletes from each region compete for a chance to test their mettle on the world stage. In 2017, each Regional’s competitors put on a hell of a show every time they took the floor, but what went on behind the scenes was also fit for prime time, and CrossFit Media Director Sevan Matossian was there to capture it all. The East Regional brought together two defending CrossFit Games champions and two other 2016 podium finishers to compete in Albany, New York, in front of screaming fans from eastern Canada and the northeastern United States. Off the competition floor, Matossian seeks out the tensions between the Regional’s key players. He chats with Patrick Vellner, last year’s third-place finisher at the Games, about what it’s like to compete with reigning Fittest Man on Earth Mat Fraser. “Last year at Regionals Mat Fraser probably wouldn’t have said a word to you. This year he’s all up in your business, assessing you. … He sees you as a peer,” Matossian says. “Are you feeling that?” Later he checks in with 2016 Games champ Katrin Davidsdottir on her Regionals performance and notes that dark horse Carol-Ann Reason-Thibault is dominating the competition. Over the course of the weekend, Matossian gets to know rising stars Tori Dyson and Marquan Jones, learns more about Games veteran Dani Horan’s recovery from heartbreak, and highlights the rivalry between the four athletes from CrossFit MF: Cody Mooney, Austin Spencer, Max Bragg and Jordan Cook. When the competition ends, the East has a new women’s champion, and a victorious Fraser tells Matossian how he finds Vellner both irritating and inspiring all at once.

Stuart Morrison: Managing Type 1 Diabetes With CrossFit



Hard-living Stuart Morrison thought he might have diabetes, and he actually used to joke about it. But his life took a serious turn when he started showing symptoms of the disease, and Morrison knew he needed to break the endless cycle of partying he had fallen into. He wasn’t sure how until he found ULT CrossFit in Ayrshire, U.K. Morrison recalls the benders he used to go on every weekend with his friends. He remembers feeling terrible and eating poorly for days afterward but recovering well enough by Thursday to do it all over again. “We didn’t think anything bad would ever happen to us,” he says. But then he started feeling tired and dehydrated, and he noticed he was making more frequent trips to the bathroom. The doctors confirmed his suspicions: Like his grandfather before him, Morrison had Type 1 diabetes. When he walked through the doors of ULT CrossFit, he had dark circles under his eyes and looked gaunt. The coaches knew he needed to replace alcohol and drugs with constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity, along with a diet of meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar. With his new fitness and nutrition regimens, Morrison isn't just managing his disease: He’s thriving. CrossFit® – Forging Elite Fitness® (http://crossfit.com)

Remembering Bob Wolff



The NBA Family mourns the loss of legendary sports broadcaster Bob Wolff. Wolff called the Knicks’ two title runs (1970, 1973) as well as Don Larsen’s perfect game for the Yankees in the 1956 World Series and the Giants’ overtime loss in the 1958 NFL championship game. In 2012, Wolff was cited by the Guinness World Records as having the longest career of any sports broadcaster (nearly 80 years). Wolff was inducted into the broadcasting wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1995 and in 2008, recognized by the Basketball Hall of Fame with the Curt Gowdy media award.
