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!

This young lady was an inspiration to watch, I'm still reading comments about how things were unfair at the games, people grow up!! I got my ass kicked, it was my first year and I wasn't prepared enough, my technique wasn't as good as many others, but I'm grateful I went, loosing(pretty bad) gave me the fire to train harder, and I'm looking forward to next year. I think the games were very well organized.
I just wish that people with scaled weights would not place higher then people who went prescribed, that's my only thing. Just train hard and show what you got next year!!!
Thanks Crossfit for an icredible experience!!!
