There is also this guy by the name Mikko Salo who I hear is pretty fit as well. I try and get him on that list.

Re: 2010 Games winner guessing

I think Speal might take it this year, considering how much stronger he is now. He's unbeatable in any bodyweight/running categories and faster and faster on the heavyweight workouts. I think he's got more drive to win it than anyone else this year.

1. Mikko
2. Speal
3. Khalipa

I realize those are probably the biggest names, but there is a good reason why they are the biggest names. They are superhuman, yet they are each incredibly humble and positive. I just can't wait for July 16.

I'm using data from http://scores2010.crossfit.com/scori...iles/2010/men/ so if there is no data for a competitor, I can't really do much with it other than impute (ie. fill in) the values with a guess.

Re: 2010 Games winner guessing

I think the men's and women's individual winners of this year's Games will both:

(1) Have been doing CF WODs for less than a year, but

(2) possess an incredible amount of stamina, strength, and heart through efforts expended over many years of pursuing an extraordinary level of SPP prior to starting CF.

For example, at that site, considering everything from Fran and to the right as data, there are 143 cells with missing values (I count Prouse's 05:15 Filthy 50 score as missing, since it is very questionable). Missing values are about 25% of the total data there.

Re: 2010 Games winner guessing

These guys don't do the girl WoDs as Rx'd much anymore either. TBH that wouldn't be good games training. Have to go heavier, so that isn't a good measuring tool. My guess is Speal hasn't done Fran or Helen as Rx'd in the past year, same with a lot of these guys. Prouses Filthy Fifty has a video:

http://vimeo.com/12204366 (WFS) and its not 5:15 its 15:38

That being said my predictions:
1. Mikko
2. Spealler
3. Ben Smith
4. Khalipa
5. Peter Egyed
6. Dan Rogers
7. Matt Chan
8. Garth Prouse

Of Course the order is subject to release of the events, but I think they will be the top 10. OPT hasn't been around enough for anyone to see or judge where he is at physically or mentally, I would love to see him do well though, however I don't think he can keep up with the younger guys.
