7. Zak Carchedi
Don’t let Carchedi’s fourth-place finish in the Central fool you—he held his own just fine in that stacked region, where he benefited from competing alongside his training partners Heppner and Andrew Kuechler. Carchedi is a cardiovascular powerhouse, too: He had the best Regionals time in grueling Event 6 (bike, handstand walk, overhead squats, rowing, and burpees). He could try to parlay that endurance into a late-Games surge, as the events start to take their toll on less conditioned CrossFitters.
