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!

That's a pretty sweet shirt. I look forward to sporting the entire week after the games. Two weeks to go.

I won't be attending but I'd love to buy one of these shirts anyways.

Are these available to purchase online?

Frickin' sweet!! That means I will have been there AND gotten the t-shirt.

Pardon my abruptness, but why would someone want a 'Competitor' t-shirt if you didn't compete? You gotta earn that!

What's with the smudge on the lettering?

By Joe on June 20, 2008 6:15 PM

I think the smudge is suppose to make the shirt look "badass". Nice shirts! Too bad I'm not competing this year... but there is always next year.

gaucoin,

I can think of 1/2 dozen reasons.

1) To wear to raise awarenss of crossfit.
2) To motivate myself
3) to show crossfit's organization.
4) to be a cometitor in spirit

Well anyays....

AFAIK, All you had to do to be a competitor was to register, pay, eventually show up (if I'm wrong corect me). So as for the logic 'It's a shirt you "earn"', the logic is sketchy.

Anyways, GL to all at the games.

Coming from a competitive Triathlon/Adventure racing back ground; I would have to agree that the "CF Games" competition shirt should only be available to those competing in the games. It's the old, "Been there, done that, got the T-shirt," cliche.

I was at the games...did not compete and want a shirt. Will wear it proudly.

I don't feel wierd wearing a hockey jersey or a San Francisco Giants t-shirt...why can't you sport one from the Crossfit Games?
