Re: CrossFit affiliate lawsuit against Steven Devor, Michael Smith, and NSCA

Of the 11 subjects who dropped out of the training program, two cited time concerns with the remaining nine subjects (16% of total recruited subjects) citing overuse or injury for failing to complete the program and finish follow up testing.”

Unfortunately, not a single person out of the 11 was contacted by anyone from OSU, and none of them were injured. This means that the only explanation for these specifics in the data is fabrication on the part of the authors.
The whole thing seamed fabricated from the get go, intent on discrediting Crossfit.
