Chad Mackay Fractures Rib on “Heavy DT” Event

This is definitely not the way I wanted to finish my @crossfitgames 2015 season. It is with a heavy heart that I will be withdrawing from competition. I have unfortunately fractured my first rib. The fracture occurred during Heavy DT. It was on my last Push Jerk of the second round. I heard a loud crack and knew something wasn't right. I tried my hardest to continue completing another 12 deadlifts. I then tried to Hang Clean and realized I couldn't continue. The good news is, these things heal with time and there is no permanent damage. Thank you to the wonderful medical team for taking great care of me. @crossfit has changed my life. Competing at the CrossFit Games has been an absolute honor. I will treasure the experience and the memories for the rest of my life. Thank you for making my dreams come true.
