Re: Why are the games in Imperial not Metric?

I guess my only thing with that is this.

When you see people lifting weight at the Crossfit Games you will see them lifting colored plates and automatically start adding the weight based on what you see on the bar (reds, blues, yellows etc) mostly if you have experience weightlifting or power lifting and are not a Crossfitter. However you will be wrong once you realize the weight is in pounds and not KG.

Other than that I could care less. I train at home mostly using KG becasue it is easier math.

FWIW NPGL is also in pounds, also bizarre.
