Dan Bailey

From 2011 to 2015, Dan Bailey made five CrossFit Games appearances and posted five Top 10 finishes. That’s the consistency of a world class athlete, and Bailey—the 2015 “Spirit of the Games” award winner—certainly fits that description.

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 Regionals in 2015. Sadly, a series of injuries have kept Dan largely on the sidelines in recent years, but the spotlight found him again in 2019, highlighted by a podium finish in the Legends division of the Rogue Invitational, and a new gig as an analyst on the Rogue Iron Game show.

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 “Clang-N-Bang” t-shirt.
