thank you for the clarification. That, i also agree with. Im sure there is a great deal of strength training, multiple Wods a day, and skill work involved. I just found his post to be irrelevant to my thread. I never implied that following the mainsite wod only, would make you elite. my point in this thread was to stimulate opinions on whether the elite level athletes succeed because of sport background.
