Sports

MWB Midwest in Joplin is getting ready for the Midwest Monster competition that begins Friday (5/11).

The competition begins on Friday (5/11) with a 5k obstacle course at Landreth Park starting at 5:30PM.

On Saturday (5/12) the competition will move back to the MWB Crossfit building located off 2nd Street in Joplin. 

“So we have competitors coming in really from all over the Midwest area. From Oklahoma, and Kansas, and Missouri and Arkansas. We’re going to have the number one fittest male in the state of Arkansas is going to be competing. We have two teenagers that have qualified for the Crossfit Games in August, one of them in the 15 and 15-year-old division, and one of them is in the 16 and 17-year-old division. They are ranked number 9 and number 11 in the world, so we are really excited to see them come in and compete,” said MWB Crossfit Owner, Jason Ansley.
