Patrick Vellner - One of the top CrossFit athletes in the sport of CrossFit. Before he became a CrossFit athlete he was a competitive gymnast and lacrosse player. Additionally, he played rugby when he was young. Patrick did gymnastics with his older brother and played lacrosse with his younger brother. After competing nationally for several years, he retired from gymnastics in 2010. He continued to play lacrosse until 2015.
In 2012, Patrick moved to Montreal to study Kinesiology at McGill University. At this point, he was only trying to keep himself fit. He went on to win the Open in 2019 and podium three out of the last 5 years. With Mat Fraser retiring 2021 could possibly be the year of Patrick Vellner.
