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!

In case OPT doesn't garner adequate fame and fortune at the Games this year, looks like he's got himself a fallback plan.

Look for him on billboards near you....

That's funny, I've never seen that poster before.

So uh, can I have your pants?

OPT you have arrived.

Question... do you ever just eat a pint of ice cream because you can't help yourself?

By Amanda on June 12, 2008 11:13 PM

OPT, thanks for all you do. You inspire all of us!

Do you not think that they would sell more by having less on you???

Hey gaucoin
I think the ladies pants will fit you better.

That may have been the worst background screeching noise ever.

I wonder if OPT plans on just casually getting out of his stylin' warm-up outerwear after somebody yells "3, 2, 1, GO!," and then just walking to the first exercise...

Well I tell you what…
If I could consistently get my WOD times to be at least half of James’s I would adorn unisex, ladies, crop, commando, florescent, booty shorts, thong, brazilin….
I think you know what I am getting at here, I would god damn cross-dress if I thought it would work.
However, knowing all this I know it’s not that pants that make the man…

James if I where a betting man, and I am, I will be betting on you!

I will be rooting for all the Calgarians / Canadians going down to the games.

Nothing better than a pair of LuLuLemon Pants.
