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!

Tom Campitelli from CrossFit Oakland put together this slideshow of his pictures of the Oakland crew from this year's Games. Oakland won the affiliate cup over several great teams, after months of dedicated preparation.

They brought the right mix of athletes and skills for this year...but who knows about next year?

Thanks to Mike Minium of CrossFit Oakland for this detailed list of not only who, but when they appear, in the slideshow.

It's fantastic to be able to put a name with a sweaty face!
