Portland CrossFit athlete determined to qualify for CrossFit Games

Posted: Updated:

After qualifying for the CrossFit Games last year, Carleen Mathews is determined to climb her way to the top.

Mathews was among the top 40 women in the world to compete at the international competition last year. This year, she has focused her training on her strength and is determined to win the 2016 Reebok CrossFit West Regional May 20-22 at the Moda Center.

The athlete lives in St. Helens but trains in Portland at CrossFit X-Factor.

Of thousands of competitors, just 40 men and women from the region will compete this weekend.

The top five in each division will qualify for the CrossFit Games in Carson, CA in July where athletes fight for the title of Fittest On Earth.
