Three former UW athletes participate in 2022 CrossFit Games
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Three former UW athletes will be participating in the upcoming 2022 CrossFit Games.
All three of the athletes, one of whom organizers noted was a top-tier athlete, will be competing in the CrossFit Games in Madison from August 3-7.
Former UW hockey player Chris Exarhos will be representing the U.S. in the games. Exarhos now lives in Seattle and will be competing in the 50-54 age group.
Former UW collegiate diver Julie Ackermann will also be representing the U.S. in the games. Ackermann is originally from Sheboygan, Wisconsin and will be competing in the 50-54 age group.
Former UW women’s hockey player Carolyne Prevost will be representing Canada in the games. After college, Prevost went on to play professionally for the Toronto Furies. Prevost is a high school teacher and a CrossFit Level 2 trainer. She is a top-tier competitor, and this is her third time qualifying for the Games.
The CrossFit Games were canceled in Madison in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the competition returned to Madison last year.
