Masters, a Note From Our Coaches

The dust has settled on the first-ever CrossFit Games Masters Qualifier and we could not be more proud of Jeff, Mike and Tom! Over the course of 4 days they took on 4 events. Only the top 20 could advance to the 2014 CrossFit Games. These men represented well throughout this year’s Open and put in incredible effort during the Qualifier. We could not be more proud and honored that they are a part of the CrossFit Central community.


  • Jeff Morgan, 45-49 Division – 135th
  • Mike Shorter, 60+ Division – 45th
  • Tom Green, 60+ Division – 72nd

Our coaches and staff members would like to let them know how bad ass they are and congratulate them on an incredible 2014 Games season. (below)
