As most of you know probably know, the 2012 CrossFit Games are a week away and they take place in our backyard at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. The CrossFit Games is the pinnacle of CrossFit performance and the Games tagline states that the winner of the CrossFit Games are the "World's Fittest Man and Woman." We encourage everyone to watch the Games, as it can be amazingly inspiring to see what true elite fitness looks like in the context of CrossFit.
But there is another competition starting soon: the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. While I'm looking forward to soaking in as many events as possible, one of my favorite events is the Decathlon, a two-day gauntlet of 10 track and field events. The winner of the decathlete is widely recognized as the World's Greatest Athlete. Check out the video below of the current reigning decathlon World Champion, Trey Hardee... how do you think he'd do at CrossFit? (My answer: Incredibly well!)
Reminder: the gym will be closed tomorrow as we've got a team doing the Tough Mudder competition and Coach Armen and Tyler at Occupy Strength at CrossFit Balboa. Wish them luck!
