Part 2: People I met at the California Regionals

The man, the myth, the legend! Coach Glassman himself. What a privilege this was.

I have to admit that I was a bit starstruck meeting the founder of CrossFit . The OG himself. He was incredibly approachable and friendly. He happily signed my shirt. He asked us some questions about where we’re from and which affiliate we belong to. Whether we were enjoying the Regionals. One of the highlights of the trip for me.

See my previous post about meeting Jamie Hagiya.

Part 1: People I Met at the California Regionals

Over the coming days I’ll post some photos of the interesting people my friends and I met when we attended the California Regionals of the CrossFit Games in Del Mar, San Diego.

The first athlete I was able to meet and get a photo with was Jamie Hagiya.

What a class act. Jamie came out of the warm up area and interacted with fans for a good few minutes. She was super-friendly. She laughed with us and posed for photos. I posted this photo on Instagram and she even responded.

The Ireland reference is because my Cape Town accent prompted Jamie to ask where we were from. Answering, ‘Dublin’ was obviously confusing since I didn’t add California. It was cool to share a laugh with her.

Look out for Part 2.

Did any of you attend any Regionals events? Did you meet anyone fun?
