When Dani Speegle made her debut on the Season 2 premiere of The Titan Games on June 1, she was considered one of the early favorites to be the last woman standing on Mount Olympus. After her dominating performance enroute to being named the Central Region’s Titan, she is one step closer to the $100,000 grand prize and the title of Titan. The Morning Chalk Up was able to catch up with the 2019 CrossFit Games athlete and discuss her experience and what she has planned for the rest of the season.

Morning Chalk Up: How did The Titan Games Regional win stack up with your other fitness achievements, specifically Sanctionals, Regionals and Games experiences?

  • Dani Speegle: “I hate to be ‘this person’ but The Titan Games was an amazingly fun experience and I enjoyed my time there, however, it wasn’t very physically challenging. It was like a big jungle gym for adults. I had a blast running through the course and honestly wished it could have been ‘3 rounds for time’ instead of just 1 LOL! The CrossFitter in me is showing! However, the fact that I felt completely prepared for anything that was thrown my way because of what I do on a daily basis was a great feeling. Nothing sacred me. It was all ‘good butterflies and excitement’!”
