SPIRIT OF THE OPEN 18.2: Michelle Stovall

Each year at the CrossFit Games, they honor someone with the Spirit of the Games award. This honor goes to the ‘athlete who embodies the spirit of the sport.’

Each week during the 2018 CrossFit Open, No Excuses CrossFit will recognize a member it feels represented the Spirit of the Games. This week’s honor goes to …

Michelle Stovall went out of her way to help a new member prepare for 18.2. She spent about 15 minutes before the first heat working with a new member on cleans to make sure they felt comfortable with the movement and could do their best in the workout. Her kind deed was rewarded later when it was time for Michelle to do the workout as she posted one of the fastest women’s times for 18.2.

“Michelle’s unselfishness to spend time helping another member when she could have been doing her own thing is what CrossFit is all about — helping others through fitness,” No Excuses CrossFit coach Brandon Brigman said.

Congrats Michelle! We are very proud of you!
