There are a lot of things I’m looking forward to at the Games this year, plenty of athletes with great stories and reasons to root for them. One of the ones that will be the most missed though is the athlete featured in the video below.

Chris Spealler is an athlete that has always inspired a tremendous amount of respect and admiration because of his grit and determination but also because of his size. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Chris is maybe 5’4″ and 150lbs soaking wet. He was a national champion in collegiate wrestling and opened the one of the first gyms in Utah when he unlocked the doors of CrossFit Park City years ago.
