BILLINGS - Three years ago, Yurii Hanson was more than skeptical about a new fitness craze called Crossfit. Tomorrow, Hanson will compete with 49 others for title of World Crossfit Games Champion.
How times have changed.
Hanson will begin the three-day World Crossfit Games competition tomorrow morning at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California, the only Montana man represented in the 50-man field. He earned his spot by winning the NorthWest Regional Crossfit Games in late May.
And Hanson didn't even sign up for the competition himself.
Watch the story above to see how he became one of the world's best, and what's driving him to stay on top.
