The Same 24 Hours

Patrick Vellner: The Crossfit Games and “We are Not Machines” (A Best of The Same 24 Hours Replay Episode)

August 9, 2021

In honor of Pat Vellner's epic and recent 2nd place finish at the 2021 Crossfit Games, we publish this replay episode.

Meredith Atwood (@meredith.atwood) and her co-host, ten-year old (at the time of publication) Stella (@stella.lifts), interview CrossFit Games podium athlete and all-around nice guy, Patrick Vellner.

Vellner says, "[As a] part time chiropractor in Nanaimo, Canada, I have an extensive sports background and have been competing in Crossfit since 2013. I made it to the games for the first time in 2015 on Team Crossfit Plateau 2 and have since been back in 2016-2019, and 2021 to compete as an individual finishing on the podium 4 times. Crossfit has been a great way for me to challenge myself and escape from my studies while also being a great outlet for my competitiveness."
