Dan Bailey to compete in SoCal region for 2014 CrossFit Games season

Following a move to Southern California, Dan Bailey, one of CrossFit's top competitive athletes, will compete in a new region during the 2014 CrossFit Games season.

In 2013, Bailey, a former track and field athlete, qualified for the CrossFit Games by placing third in the highly competitive Central East region, behind three-time CrossFit Games champion Rich Froning and two-time fourth place CrossFit Games finisher Scott Panchik, during the 2013 Regionals. Bailey went on to finish in eighth place at the Games.

Southern California has long been an extremely competitive region for the Women's division. Now, with Games veteran Bailey joining Josh Bridges, Kenny Leverich, and Wes Piatt, the Men's division just got significantly more competitive.

Pound for pound, Bailey is one of the strongest athletes in the sport. At the 2012 CrossFit Games, Bailey cleaned an impressive 198 percent of his total body weight during the Clean Ladder event. He recently took on a team of four different athletes, including NorCal CrossFit's Miranda Oldroyd, in four successive benchmark workouts and nearly won.

Fans should expect to see Bailey make it through the 2014 CrossFit Open to compete at the Southern California regionals. On a scale from one to ten, with ten being the most difficult, Bailey recently said in an interview that qualifying for regionals was a "three."
