2010 CrossFit Games Finals

All over the Map Part 6: Froning and Kinney

Meet the top finishers from the Southeast.

The CrossFit Journal series, All Over the Map, continues through the Southeastern United States.

With only two weeks until the first barbell flies at the 2010 CrossFit Games, Ian Wittenber is still cranking his way across the country, interviewing as many individual athletes as possible along the way.

Checking in from Atlanta, Ga., and Bartlett, Tenn., Wittenber catches up with the Southeast Regional first-place finishers Rich Froning Jr. and Michelle Kinney.

Froning, a fresh face to CrossFit competition, bested previous Games competitors Brandon Phillips, Spencer Hendel and Mike Giardina to take first at the Southeast event after winning the Alabama Sectional. Froning's preparation for the 2010 Games sounds a bit disparate, yet his performance thus far proves he's a top-level athlete who's doing something right.

Another newcomer and Alabama Sectional winner, Kinney got off to a slow start at the Southeast Regional but climbed her way up the ladder by the end of the weekend for a first-place finish.

Both first-time Games competitors hail from Tennessee and will be looking to continue their success in Los Angeles.
