Connor Martin finished 114th in the 2008 CrossFit Games. He was 16. (He finished 32nd in 07 at the age of 15.) He completed all four workouts as Rx'd and within the predetermined cutoff time. Of the 196 registered men, only 119 accomplished that.

Connor competed against the top men in the country because there are no divisions in the CrossFit Games. He is the eldest son of the Jeff and Mikki Martin, the founders of CrossFit Kids and CrossFit Brand X in Ramona, CA.

Ever heard anyone say, "If only I had found CrossFit when I was younger"? Well, you're looking here at someone who did. Rumor is that this year he's substantially stronger and even hungrier. Watch out!

Connor's accomplishments have always been impressive given his age, but when I saw his 2:30 Fran, I knew he could hang with the big guys. You're gonna ROCK this year, man!

And to top it off he is one of the nicest, most grounded young men you will find. Keep up the good work Conner and you will go far in life in anything you choose.
