Last year Zareh wrote about what he thought was the greatest athletic performance ever. Is he right? I dunno. What I do know is that while it may not be the greatest athletic performance ever by anything ever, this video of 2009 CrossFit Games Champion Mikko Salo completing Fran in 2:16 then easily walking away is one of my favorite athletic performances ever. Check it out at the link above or embedded below.
What makes it so awesome? Jump to 4 minutes into the video and you'll see Mikko finish, hop off the bar, find out his time, and give a little nod as if to say "Eh, not bad, I'll take it". Then he just walks away, as if he's a badass from an action movie and the gym just exploded in a ball of flame behind him. Boom.
15 minutes to Complete:
max weight snatch
Score is weight completed on the snatch
