Atlanta, Ga. – It’s go time. The next round of the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games season begins Friday, May 17, with the Regionals – a four-week series of competitive CrossFit events that further narrows down the field of what began as 138,000 athletes. Kill Cliff™ Recovery Drink will be available to the public at select Regional events, as Kill Cliff sponsored athletes take their shot at making it to the Finals at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., July 25-28.
“Kill Cliff will be helping athletes, officials and spectators recover during the CrossFit Regionals and Finals,” Kill Cliff founder Todd Ehrlich said. “Kill Cliff will be available at South East, North East, Southern California, Northern California, Central East, and North Central CrossFit Regionals and at the Finals in Carson, Calif.”
Kill Cliff supports regional qualifiers and former Games competitors in their quest to make it back to the Finals including: Stacie Tovar, Becca Voigt, Lindsey Valenzuela, Katie Hogan, Jaime Gold, Nate Schrader, Daniel Tyminski, Kenny Leverich, Kyle Kasperbauer, Jared Stevens and the CrossFit New England team.
“In 2011 I took third place at the CrossFit Games and this year I’m going for the win,” Kill Cliff athlete Becca Voigt said, who will compete in the Southern California Regionals alongside Kill Cliff athlete Lindsey Valenzuela.
Kill Cliff athlete Daniel Tyminski is set to make a run at the podium in 2013. Tyminski finished 23rd in 2011 and 14th at the 2012 Games. He has recently recruited the coaching of Rudy Nielsen and started following The Outlaw Way.
Kill Cliff athlete Nate Schrader who discovered CrossFit while deployed in Afghanistan with an Army Special Operations unit took 14th in 2011 and 12th in 2012. “My goal this year is the podium,” Schrader said.
Kenny Leverich, who likes long WODs on the beach and candlelit Frans, will be representing Kill Cliff as an athlete during the Southern California regionals. Leverich can clean and jerk 350 lbs, snatch 270 lbs, dead lift 550 lbs, back squat 450 lbs, and he rides a Pegasus.
“The work capacity these competitors have makes them Kill Cliff athletes,” Kill Cliff founder Todd Ehrlich said. “Go out there, kill it and recover. See you at the Games.”
