HWPO Training announced last Thursday that Sam Kwant, fresh off his fourth-place finish at the 2022 NOBULL CrossFit Games, has become an HWPO athlete heading into the 2023 season. He joins  Mal O’Brien and Jayson Hopper, as well as three other Games veterans—Katrin Davidsdottir, Thuridur Helgadottir and Amanda Barnhart—on the growing HWPO team.

Kwant will likely continue to train with his long-time personal coach Harry Palley, who announced he joined HWPO Training’s coaching team in July, in his quest to achieve his ultimate goal of winning the CrossFit Games.

“I don’t think I would still be doing it if I didn’t think I had a chance to win. I’m not doing it for fun,” the 26-year-old Kwant told the Morning Chalk Up last week.
