We’ve reached 40 episodes on the Kill Cliff podcast! To celebrate, we brought on Kill Cliff athlete Blaine McConnell as our guest all the way from Iceland. Blaine is an all-around athlete with experience in baseball, football, and CrossFit. His athletic background led him to join Team USA Bobsled.

Host Mark Zinno and Blaine go through Blaine’s impressive athletic background, the struggles of playing defensive back in arena league football, his introduction to CrossFit, how CrossFit could help football players train, his GRID league experiences, his girlfriend (now wife) proposing to him, working with CrossFit Invictus in San Diego, an Olympic watch part led him to becoming interested in bobsled, and his journey in making Team USA Bobsled.
