Santa Monica SWAT Team Tactical Team Leader Sgt. Greg Smiley will compete in the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games July 22-28 at the StubHub Center in Carson, CA.

Smiley, 45, will compete in the Masters 45-49 Division. He qualified with a 15th-place finish worldwide in this year’s Open.

Smiley told CrossFit.com that he trains his SWAT team members using CrossFit.

“The team starts every training day with a CrossFit workout,” Smiley told the website. “These are either done on the beach of Santa Monica or at a local box in the city … We train all over the Los Angeles area, and have found that the box owners are always more than willing to allow the team to train at their box.”
