Towards the end of 2019, James Newbury revealed that he spent his 29th birthday laid up in hospital following a freak mountain bike accident. With multiple fractures and a frightening gash in his lung, the Fifth Fittest Man from 2019 was forced to abandon the Open - and with that, the challenge of qualifying for the 2020 Games became a whole lot more difficult.
But his 2020 season wasn’t over yet. With a wildcard entry into the Australian CrossFit Championship, Newbury, the four-time Games athlete, would aim to defend his 2019 ACC title and once again make a return trip to Madison. Follow Newbury's Journey Back To The Games - a four part mini-series taking you along for the ride and behind the scenes of his biggest adventure yet.
