Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

I was there too. I thought you were referencing the Dogsled workout. He didn't sandbag it, he just came from behind and passed Speal on the sled.

I heard him talking after 'the end 3'. All he wanted was to win the final.

Right! I misunderstood which workout you were talking about.

Here's Barber on the Dog Sled:

I was thinking the sled pull at "The End" workout of 2011 because that was similar to the pull at the end of the Rope Chipper this year.

It's too bad that it came down to the technique used to pull the sled and net necessarily to "fitness." Davidsdottir had a better technique pulling the sled than Toomey and that's why she beat her. Over the whole Games, it's a great test of fitness, but each individual event so often just comes down to technique instead of fitness. I don't know how to get around that.

Now to settle all of this you just have to crush everything like Fraser.

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

it also has the world's fittest spectators.

and world's fittest judges.

But did you know they also have the world's fittest cameramen? or at least the fastest? check the camera dude (bottom of the screen) on the final turn of men's heat 4 -- (wfs) http://i.imgur.com/fqlkDDF.gif

Haha I pointed that out to my wife when I watched it on TV.

Guess he missed the cut for the Finals by only a few points?

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

Kara Webb was given the Spirit of the Games award.

http://games.crossfit.com/video/spirit-games-kara-webb (wfs)

I thought it might go to Jennifer Smith after watching her struggle through the events despite a foot injury.

I'm satisfied to see Kara Webb receive the award this year. After her terrible Murph last year, she came back this year enthusiastic to do the event again. Kudos to her.
