With the build up to the CrossFit Games, France based South African Kealan Henry joins the DVSN athlete roster.
At the CrossFit Fittest in Cape Town Semifinals, the 27 year old placed 5th overall, competing against some of the strongest competitors on the African continent for a ticket to the CrossFit Games, taking the win in Event 3. This was Kealan’s first in-person CrossFit competition, having retired from professional rugby.
In the Quarterfinals he finished just two points behind Jason Smith, but had the edge in event wins with two. The South African won the first two events of the Africa Quarterfinals and added a second place finish to Smith in Test 5 along with a 10th place in Test 3.
In the Open Kealan was the top athlete in Africa, finishing an impressive 83rd worldwide.
