Five years ago 60 Year old Rocky Eades decided to give CrossFit a try.

Rocky has always been an athlete, participating in wrestling and track back in high school and CrossFit
was perfect for him.

It didn't take long for Rocky to excel in the world of CrossFit, in fact he finished his first competition in
the top 100 for his age group. 

Since then Rocky has competed in San Francisco and Tuscon and now he's on his way to Madison Wisconsin, to compete with some of the best cross fitters across the globe.

Rocky is the first Wyoming CrossFit athlete to compete at the World Games.

He's been preparing for months, spending hours in the gym every day, he say's he's in better shape now than he was 20 years ago.

He's the perfect example, age is just a number and he say's he's ready to go head to head with athletes from Europe, Latin America, and Australia. 

Rocky say's there are bound to be men stronger than he is, but he is sure his endurance will help him
in the competition.

If you want to watch Rocky compete the games will be broadcast on the CrossFit Games Website and on Facebook.
