Re: Crossfit Games 2013 Predictions ?

I'm personally hoping Scott Panchik and Josh bridges are up there along with Rich

Mainly because there are the smallest of the absolute elite and i really really don't want to see the Crossfit games become a modified Strongman contest

How do you figure Panchik is one of the smallest?

As long as the games continues to program running/rowing, an endurance event, and body weight pull-ups, then I really don't see that happening.

I believe any of the top 5mentioned above have a chance to win it. Rich is not the best in every event. Just 99%

Gotta see what they are doing before I can make a prediction on who will win

Have to question this as well. At 5'9" and 190, he is almost exactly the same size as Rich.

Only a couple of the top competitors mentioned above are over 200, and none of them are over 6'0", I don't think this will be a strongman competition any time soon.
