After four Top 10 finishes at the CrossFit Games, however (including the runner-up slot in 2012), Chan became a full-time athlete and one of the most popular and knowledgeable veterans in the sport. Already 30 when he made his Games debut in 2008, Chan had to battle through injuries and out-work a growing field of younger challengers to maintain his drive for the podium. In 2013, despite nagging knee problems, he showed his heart and resolve by taking first place at a Regional competition for an incredible sixth straight year. The next summer, a horrific bike accident threatened not only his competitive career, but his ability to walk. True to form, though, Chan battled back again and improbably produced a Top 10 finish at the 2015 Southwest Regionals—not enough for a return to the Games, but another bold statement from one of the sport’s most respected ambassadors. Throughout his career, Matt Chan has taken a very active role as a Rogue athlete and advisor, helping to co-develop his own Signature Series line of products. This includes his personally designed 28.5mm bushing barbell, the Rogue Chan Bar. Matt and his wife Cherie are on the CrossFit Trainers Staff and live in Boulder, CO." @reps_for_responders @matt1chan @therealjumpmanjay @inside_the_lab_podcast https://repsforresponders.org Youtube: Reps For Responders--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/Inside-The-Laybrinth/support
