Re: CrossFitters vs Decathletes

Tommy Hackenbruck and Kyle Kasperbauer (sp?) placed very high at last year's Games, and Neil Maddox appears to be on track for a good showing this year judging by his performance at SW Regionals. Paul Smith put up a beastly performance at the South Central Regionals until he got unlucky with some of the ROM requirements on a single movement which took him out of contention. All were college football players (Tommy being the only one from a big-time D1 school I think) who picked up CF fairly recently and started smoking most of the "original" CFers in a short period of time. So there's definitely a precedent for what will happen when former high-level athletes start competing in CF, and that precedent is that mere mortals like most of us will not be able to compete with physical freaks.
