OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - He might only be 15 years old but that’s doesn’t mean he hasn’t been dreaming about this for years. Isaiah Weber is the top qualifier in his age group for the CrossFit games in late July. It is the pinnacle of CrossFit and will crown the fittest man in the world, in several age divisions. Isaiah’s division is 14-15 years old.

Only the top 20 qualifiers from around the world are invited to the games in late July. It will happen in Madison, Wisconsin.

Isaiah is working with Kyle Kasperbauer who knows the path well. He’s won two titles in his age group at the games and is the second-best qualifier this year. Kyle also owns CrossFit Kinesis in Gretna where they will train together six days a week leading up to the games.

Isaiah also plays football at Gretna, and his sister will play soccer at Nebraska next season after just winning a state title a week ago. She also set the Class A state record for the most goals in one season. Isaiah says they feed off each other.
