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!

So now, we begin to see the REAL nature of athletes, pushed to the edge by pre-competiton jitters (and Sevan) coming to light. The veneer starts to crack...

"Everett wins for funniest cfgames video" Does that come with 500 bucks like the other events?
You guys may not belive this but I've had no formal training in acting :)

No I'm afraid not, but I could always make you an Oscar out of tinfoil and paint it gold. Would this be a suitable sub for the money? :)
FYI here at Temple we have some actors who act like they have never had formal training.haha......no but seriously they really need to choose a different profession.

Hahaha - awesome!

I'd really like to see these athletes interviewed seriously and learn how they are actually training for the games. I find the humor thing kind of frustrating.

Hey Joe,

I appreciate the criticism accompanied by helpful suggestions.

It sure beats -just- being slammed.

I am going to the Union City Cert tomorrow. I will interview a couple of the guys (Dutch, Pat, Freddy) and get some training gems for you.

Are there any questions in particular that you would like me to ask?

cheers

At first for a moment I thought that it was for real, but then I saw some hints in that it was all a joke. But yeah like Joe said It is better just to actually know what the training regimen is.

Seeing as how so much of the "Crossfit Experience" is hardcore work, I really enjoy the playful aspects of this site. Sevan, you and the team are doing a great job!

By Bill Ellsworth on June 29, 2008 10:22 AM

Sevan,

Suggested questions:
1. If a fried of yours was entering CFG for the first time, what would your 3 suggestions to them be?

2. If a friend of yours was entering CFG for the second time, after finishing mid-table, what would your 3 suggestions to them be?

3. What was the most common mistake at CFG 2007?

Well, my son moved to California and finally became an actor after 9 years! I love the video, not characteristic of Josh at all! I know how hard he works in and out of the weightroom! Way to go Josh! I love you! Mom
