Stacie Tovar Isn’t Going to the Crossfit Games



Five times. But not a sixth.

There will no doubt be white shorts at the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games, but they won’t be on Stacie Tovar.

Things started to go sideways for Tovar on Friday as she struggled with the snatch in Event 1. Moments later, a botched handstand walk in Event 2 landed her at just 35 feet—a tie for 23rd place. She made a strong recovery, though, taking first in Event 3.

Tovar’s Day 2 at the North Central Regional brought more disappointment with an emotional 10th place finish in Event 5.
