The numbers don’t lie: five CrossFit Games appearances, five Top 10 finishes. That’s the consistency of a world class athlete, and Dan Bailey—the 2015 “Spirit of the Games” award winner—is certainly that.

A former track and field standout at Ohio University, Bailey was introduced to CrossFit while studying for his master’s degree at the University of Akron in 2010. Finding a new outlet for his drive to compete, he soon became an annual presence at the Central East Regionals, reaching the podium each year from 2011-2013. In 2014, when his professional life forced a move to San Diego, Bailey didn’t skip a beat—reaching the podium at the SoCal Regional that year and taking first place at the California Regional in 2015. As his competitors have long since come to know, no challenge fazes the “The Danimal.”

As a longtime Rogue athlete—dating back to his Ohio days—Dan Bailey remains a proud ambassador for the brand. His own Rogue Signature Series products include the official Dan Bailey t-shirt and “Clang-N-Bang” shirt.
