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!

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

Run, Caity, Run!

Here's another great video from yesterday's enthusiastic, if slightly unsteady, videographer. The heart and enthusiasm he (and the other Games spectators) displays is wonderful. I'm afraid Bingo may have lost the "top spectator" title here. These videos are a great addition to our catalog of Games content, and they also really make you appreciate the efforts of Tony B and his team.

Caity finished the run in 11th overall for the women - pretty amazing.
