#9: Kristin Miller (CrossFit Mayhem)
Play • 55 min

Jon and I both worked with Kristin during the NPGL's amateur GRID tournament - remember GRID? We put together a team of misfits and went out to LA to compete, and we actually did pretty well. We took second overall, which meant that we got an automatic bid to the next year's tournament. Still waiting for that invite...

Kristin has gone on to make two CrossFit Games appearances with OC3 Black (in 2017) and CrossFit Mayhem Independence (in 2018). She will compete with CrossFit Mayhem Freedom in the 2019 season - which is shaping up to have quite the interesting structure.
