What are the CrossFit Games?

“In implementation, this looks like sport. This is revolutionary. It's as distinctive of the program as are the movements and the charter of functionality and variance. Our workouts are competitive events.

The strength and value of CrossFit lies entirely within our dominance of other athletes. This is a truth divined through competition, not debate.”

Greg Glassman, CrossFit Co-Founder & CEO
3, 2, 1 — GO!

The Games are over and the results are in!

The Top Female CrossFitter for 2008 is Caity Matter of Gahanna, OH, where she trains with Rogue Fitness. Tanya Wagner took second place and Gillian Mounsey took third.

The Top Male CrossFitter for 2008 is Jason Khalipa of CrossFit Unlimited in Milpitas, CA. Josh Everett came in second, with Jeremy Thiel in third.

The Affiliate Cup was won by the team from CrossFit Oakland.

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all the volunteers, spectators, and competitors for a great weekend!

CrossFit Hardcore At the 08 Games

View image

CrossFit Hardcore of Boca Raton, FL sent a few folks to the Games:
Adriana Grassi
Omar Torres (Bionic)
Lance Mosely

They made a highlight video of their experience.

The picture is of the 3 of them with another Floridian (Jenni Orr). We're not sure what they're doing here, so maybe some other native Floridians can offer some ideas.

Praying? Looking for a lost contact? Bowing to their leader?

Looking for Bionics nipple ring...I'm not from Florida but that's what I'm putting my money on.

Great performances by all three of you. We didn't get a chance to meet at the games but you seemed like nice people. See ya next year

Thanks everyone. We had a blast competing and meeting awesome people over on the West coast. The CrossFit community is incredible i don't care what anyone says or call us, "cult members", "cult leaders", cult whatever. I'm proud to be part of this "cult" as they say, LOL!!!

And to be honest, i don't know what the rest of my crew was looking for on that picture, but i was looking for everything i lost on that hill run. Which was pretty much all i had left in me! See you all next year...

Pretty well put together video. I have couple of potential CF recruits on the line and that video is helping to pull them in. It's hard for a middle-aged gal with only a little over a year at CF to pull in the buff boys (leave that alone, please..hahaha) but this video is helping lots. Thanks! And I agree with 'The Pie'... these guys from Florida look like a cool bunch of folks. I have some friends in Florida. Maybe I'll get out there and check you guys out some day....

By Gloria Jean on August 8, 2008 3:17 PM

I have to thank my man Bionic for making me look good on this video!!!
It almost look like I kicked some serious a@#$ out there!!!! NOOOTTT LOL
I sucked big time, but the experience was amazing, I can't wait for next year, and if you really want to know what we were looking for it was...... I think my lungs after that RUN!!!!

By Adriana on August 8, 2008 6:54 PM

Ha! I could breath after the run . . . walking . . that was the trouble . . .

By TexasPatrick on August 8, 2008 8:06 PM

Sweet sweet video, except for the part where I saw myself running. POSE cert this weekend and I need it badly...

By gaucoin on August 8, 2008 9:16 PM

Yeah that video was done by Biosh Productions and it only gives a little(very little) taste of what we all experienced at the Games. Any one of you that were there, can attest to this.

Besides all of the body parts and organs that may have been lost on the "Hill", we were actually looking at a mole.

Can't wait until next year. The CrossFit community is the SHIZNIT!!! and we are glad to be a part of it. If anybody has family or friends in South Florida, tell them to stop by.

By Heinz aka Lance on August 10, 2008 6:47 PM
