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!

Here's a great video sent in by Josh and Tanya Wagner of CrossFit Apex in Harleysville PA. It chronicles their games experience from start to finish. You will see blood, sweat, and smiles, but no tears, in this one.

The games were filled with kind warm hearted people.

And some how Tanya's presence stood out in this crowd of mega people.

Carey, Hayley and I all had the same impression after meeting TANYA... "WOW", that chick is fooking cool!

If you get a chance, go up and say hi to this amazing HUMAN being. She radiates warmth.

I am really looking forward to seeing her again.

Great video. It was a pleasure to meet you two. Looking forward to seeing Tanya make a run at it again next year. That was an awesome performance all weekend. It scares me to think how much better she is going to be next year!

It was a weekend we'll never forget. So many amazing athletes and incredible performances of strength and heart. It was so awesome to be a part of such a charged up event. The thing that still gets me about Crossfit are the people...they're all so cool. We met people from different states and countries yet it felt like we were old friends with them all.

Thanks for the kind words Sevan...the feeling is mutual. I could have talked to the three of you all day! Can't wait for your movie, best of luck! If you're ever out our way, please visit, the invitation is always there. (Who knows maybe even that ass whoopin! Did you say deadlifts? haha)

Freddy, wish we had a chance to talk more. One World Monday morning was so cool...and Jolie, she's just awesome. Thanks for making Mike sweat!
