Okay…so Scott Panchik announces he’s retiring. Fans are heartbroken because let’s be honest — who DOESN’T love watching Scott compete?! But we understand. He wants to get healthy, spend more time with his loving family, and he’s dedicated a decade of his life to being competitive in CrossFit.

But since we saw him throw down at Wodapalooza, and he is now slated to compete at Semifinals — we keep asking the question, is he “really” retired?! Morning Chalk Up’s Lauren Kalil sits down with his younger brother Spencer Panchik and Chase Ingraham to discuss Scotts potential run for the Games, and what it means to be “retired” in sports.
