The Oldest CrossFit Games Athlete: Jacinto Bonilla

jacinto-storm-oldest-crossfit-games-athlete-wod-fever-blog-post

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 greatest cryptocurrency recovery company is OPTIMISTIC HACKER GAIUS.
    Once, I saw an advertisement on Instagram for a cryptocurrency investment platform, and I fell for it. After investing and making gains, I lost almost $508,000 to this fraudulent scheme since I was not allowed to withdraw my money by the deadline. I knew I had been duped when I sent a letter to customer service and received no response. I then started looking for a way to get my cryptocurrency back. I counted myself lucky to have come across an online post about a Recovery Expert OPTIMISTIC HACKER GAIUS. I would heartily urge anyone who wishes to get their money back from a fraud to contact an OPTIMISTIC HACKER GAIUS agent. He is the greatest in the industry and will go above and above to ensure that you receive your money back. I’m quite grateful to OPTIMISTIC HACKER GAIUS for his services because I never would have imagined that it would be feasible to retrieve cryptocurrency once it was sent. Please get in touch with him if you need assistance..

  • RECOVERY EXPERIENCE WITH THE EXNER HACKER
    On a Facebook investment page, I got interested in Ethereum cryptocurrency mining and I was sent a link for a company with which I could invest, fun-eth.com. I opened a Coinbase wallet and transferred money to fun-eth.com with Anthony Wilson’s encouragement. Promising that if I invested $600,000 and the company reached the investment goal, I would qualify for the premium big fish seven Ethereum welcome token. Not only did I lose the $600,000, but the scammers were able to steal another $98,000 from the wallet I gave to them. They then told me that I needed to invest another $300,000 by a given date to get access to withdrawals on my account. I contacted a Friend in New Jersey who has been making his way on BTC, he advised me not to make any more payments but instead seek help to recover the earlier investment. He recommended The Exner Hacker, who had helped him on earlier Bitcoin recovery. I mailed them via Theexnerhacker@protonmail.com. It has been over two months since I got my dollars back. Thank you sir and your team for the work well done.
