Eight-time CrossFit Games masters athlete and three-time masters champion David Hippensteel was on the hunt to return to the Games in 2022, but ultimately withdrew all five of his quarterfinals scores, ending his bid for a potential ninth trip to the Games.

Morning Chalk Up’s Lauren Kalil sits down with Hippensteel and long-time coach and Founder of Aerobic Capacity, Chris Hinshaw, to discuss what ultimately led Hippensteel to pull out of the season,  the conversations he had behind the scenes with CrossFit, and his plans heading into the 2023 season.
