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...
