We are thrilled to announce that Jenna (@jennamichelotti_cf) has officially qualified for the 2022 CrossFit Games! This is her second time heading to Madison to compete for the title “Fittest on Earth”, but this year was riddled with challenges that would have deterred even the most tenacious athlete.
This year she will be competing in the 16-17 year old division — as a 16-year-old. That means that many of the young women in this field have had the advantage of another crucial year of training, natural human development, and overall experience gained. CrossFit also reduced the competition field from 20 athletes qualifying down to 10. This put tremendous pressure on the qualifying rounds, and after coming off an elbow injury, making these even more emotionally and physically taxing than imaginable.
Most amazingly, despite these astounding athletic accomplishments, she is one of the kindest and most humble people we know. Every day we get to see her interact with all levels of athletes at the Cove — at every age. And she finds ways to relate and connect to each of them in her own personal way. This kind of personal growth for someone of her age and ability is simply inspiring. Looking forward to watching her shine on that world’s stage!
THAT LOOKS REALLY HEAVY!
