Local CrossFit gym owner and trainer Michael McElroy placed 16th at the annual CrossFit Games South Central Regionals in San Antonio, Texas. McElroy, one of only two male competitors from Mississippi, competed against 60 men in Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. Going into the last workout, McElroy was the only Mississippi competitor to make it into the top 18 and compete.
Regionals competitions continue through the end of May. After Regionals, the top three men, the top three women and the top three teams will move on and are slated to compete in the CrossFit Games in California in July.
