There has been plenty of excitement across the CrossFit community this week, with news six-time CrossFit Games competitor Chris Spealler has registered for the 2013 CrossFit Open.
The CrossFit veteran announced his retirement from the sport last year, saying the time was right for him to move onto other things in his life.
However, Spealler seems to have gone back on his word, signing up for this year’s Open and updating his athlete bio with this quote:
“I prefer the number 7…. here we go again!”
At this stage there has been no formal announcement on whether Spealler is just taking part in the Open for fun, or in the hope of qualifying for his 7th straight CrossFit Games.
So we’d like to know what you think.
Do you think Chris Spealler will compete in the 2013 Regionals if he qualifies?
Or do you think the CrossFit veteran is only taking part in the Open for fun, and plans to stay true to his word on retirement?
