10. Dan Bailey
Weight: 179 pounds
Bailey is the media darling of CrossFit, working for the headquarters and often used as the face of the sport. He’s competing out of California this year, having moved out of the North East region. Jentgen points out that as a former collegiate sprinter, he’s likely to do well in short, fast events.
“He’s had a bunch of top 10 finishes, but tends to be someone who is almost too powerful and too much of a sprinter to really win, but always does very well,” Nief says. “He was clearly dominant in the Southern California Regional, which is one of the more competitive, so I expect him to do well in the Games this year.”Back to top
