The Oldest CrossFit Games Athlete: Jacinto Bonilla


CrossFit boxes around the world are doing the "Jacinto Storm" WOD this week in honor of Jacinto Bonilla, the oldest athlete to compete in the CrossFit Games.

Jacinto Bonilla turned 78 on July 3rd.  After a lifelong passion for sports and bodybuilding, he first walked into a CrossFit gym in 2006 at the age of 67.  While he knew some of the techniques, Jacinto quickly learned how rigorous the training was and soon fell in love with the regimen.

Defeating Cancer

His work attitude inspired everyone around him.  Then in 2008 he came down with prostate cancer. Despite eating healthy and training most of his life, he was sent a curve ball.  Luckily after unfailing optimism, an operation, and two months of recovery, Jacinto was back in the gym.

Doctors cautioned him about starting CrossFit again.  His first lift – he felt a tug in his abdomen and discovered he had a hernia that put him back on the operating table. Nevertheless, he persevered.

Jacinto healed up and competed in the July 2008 CrossFit Games only 3 months after defeating cancer and a hernia. He hasn’t looked back since.

The 'Jacinto Storm' WOD

On his 69th birthday, he created the “Jacinto Storm” WOD, modeling it after “Filthy Fifty”.  Each year, he has added another rep.  And each year, more CrossFit athletes have joined him in celebration of his remarkable fitness achievement.

  • The productive result from consulting Daniel Meuli regarding the extremely painful and sudden loss of Bitcoin from my crypto wallet is something I can’t talk enough about. Having encountered different firms who failed to help out with some of them making exuberant demands, I thought it was something not possible till I bumped into Daniel Meuli, who amazingly got my lost bitcoin recovered back right into my crypto wallet using their advanced digital technology, as explained to me. I strongly recommend them for crypto loss retrieval of all sort as their expertise have been personally confirmed. Their contact email is Danielmeuliweberecovery (@) email . come;
