CrossFit Iconic Qualifies 5 for CrossFit Games Quarterfinals 2021

ESCONDIDO, Calif. - April 12, 2021 - PRLog -- At CrossFit Iconic, in Escondido, some pretty amazing things are happening. This year, while a majority of gyms were closed, owners Chris and Kaylee Cordova managed to keep their gym open with an outdoor workout space and never ending set up of equipment and weights. Before the pandemic there were a lot of choices for places to work out, but only the strongest have survived.

Fast forward to the end of March 2021, when the "CrossFit Open" conducted three weeks of competition to begin identifying their "top athletes in the world." In North America- 65,950 women competed and 74,100 men competed. Based on a complicated scoring scheme, only the top 10% of individual athletes from North America qualified to move on to the quarterfinals.  And guess what?  CrossFit Iconic is home to five of them:
  • Chris Cordova, of Escondido
  • Zachary Perkins, of Escondido
  • Briana Wintner, of Escondido
  • Anthony Rodriguez, of Escondido - also trains with CrossFit Trifecta
  • Dan Hardiman, of Rancho Bernardo - also trained with CrossFit Barracks
Last week all the athletes performed five test workouts and submitted these workouts for video review and verification. Now we wait to see if their performance will make the cut. The next stop will be the Semifinals in May and June where the field will be reduced substantially.

If they can dominate the workouts, that typically include rope climbs, handstand push ups, box jumps, and the usual CrossFit fare, these athletes will be heading for Madison, Wisconsin for the CrossFit Games July 27-August 1. Keep your fingers crossed and your laces tied!  This year, forty-five athletes from the CrossFit Iconic gym participated in the Open, ranging in ages from 15 to 60+.

CrossFit Iconic offers classes from 5:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday with special environmental and team workouts on Saturdays. Visit for details.
