It has been a crazy first week of the CrossFit Games Open. We've seen Jacob Heppner, Chandler Smith, and Marcus Filly all withdraw from the competition for various reasons and now another. Brooke Ence has pulled out of the 2017 CrossFit Games Season:

According to her Instagram, Ence has been suffering from nerve pain on her right side for months now and has now been diagnosed with severe herniations in her neck at C6 and C7.
Ence made a splash at the 2015 CrossFit Games and just barely missed qualifying for the 2016 Games. Hopefully she gets healthy and back to the competition floor sooner rather than later.
