I cannot even think of an appropiate title for this.....

WFS, although you may injure yourself from facepalming.

Seriously? This could well be the DUMBEST thing I have ever seen in Crossfit. I am facepalming at just what the organisers must have thought when they decided to program this. Check our Outlaws log for a good write up by Rudy.

PS: I hope the Girl is OK.

..........among many other things, what I don't get is after seeing the rope go under the tire she thought it'd be a good idea to keep running..

That's what she gets for slacking off. The sport of fitness has no room in it for people like her. When time counts keep up or get bounced off the side of a police car.

Re: I cannot even think of an appropiate title for this.....

I put it in the fitness section because this was done at a Crossfit Competition testing "the fittest" so I thought it was appropiate to discuss it here.

Doug This is what happens if you are not as eleet as Jason Khalipa

Re: I cannot even think of an appropiate title for this.....

What's even sadder is that her "teammates" don't go over to her (at all), the people who just walk over to her when it happens (there was one or two that ran), and the _________ (fill in the blank) who are laughing at the end.

The girl, and the organizers of the event, are really lucky her foot didn't get sucked under than tire and crush her foot/ankle.

Worst, event idea, ever.

Re: I cannot even think of an appropiate title for this.....

My question is did anyone think it was a bad idea to tie yourself to a car? Why not just hold the rope over the shoulder like every other pulling event I have ever been to.

Especially when you are tied to a car with khalipa pulling it.

More bad press

Re: I cannot even think of an appropiate title for this.....

If you find the notion of being slammed into a police car during a poorly designed competition and breaking your neck so foreign to you, then we don't want you in our ranks.
