For anyone who hasn’t heard Kevin Ogar, an elite level CF athlete, suffered a major spinal injury during a snatch event at the 2014 OC Throwdown. Kevin did not have insurance and the CF community is asking for donations to help him out. Below is a link to the Fundly site set up on his behalf where you can donate if you wish. Below that is another link to a news story by the Rx Review discussing his accident.
As CrossFitters, we like to go hard in our workouts but accidents can occur, even to the most experienced athletes. First and foremost in our minds during any workout should be the safety of ourselves and those around us. Please be cognizant of this during your next WOD and keep Kevin in your thoughts!
TRAIN HARD, BE SAFE!
