My new favorite video!

Living in California, I'm bummed I can't be there to watch you compete. I'm confident you can make it out here to Aromas though. Great work, and good luck.

Great video; I'm on the wrong side of the country to see you at the Sectionals, but I look forward to seeing you in Aromas.

I busted a gut at 4:18 - I'd love to see those at the Games!

I had the opportunity to meet Kevin at our CrossFit gym last weekend for a small social competition as a tune up prior to sectionals. The events were CrossFit Total and BARBARA Kevin won it... surprise, NO.

What was surprising is that Kevin is a low key and genuinely nice guy. I'll be rooting him on at Sectionals. I'm a big fan of the body weight skils, keep it coming sir.

Dude, you just blew my mind. Nice!!! I think I'll have to go to the Mountain Sectionals to see what you can do. I live in Littleton after all!

My partner is one of the most amazing athletes I have seen in my life. Kid has incredible drive, passion, strength, and is one of the nicest young men you could hope to meet. Not only will he kick booty at the CrossFit games, he has turned our 31 year old gym into one of the hottest Crossfit facilities in Colorado!

Best of luck Kevin. You got a whole gym behind ya!
