09MAR WOD Picture

On the picture taken near the Troll Wall, in Norway, it would appear that the dude is BASE jumping...or falling to his death.

Does anybody know what is going on in that picture? Because if it is a BASE jump I would be very disappointed to know that HQ is fine with posting pictures of crossfitters breaking the law (the link provided even mentions that it has been illegal there since 1986).

Not a BASE jump. He is falling to his death.

You answered your own question...

I would cry myself to sleep if I knew HQ did that.

j/k. You've got to be joking.

Re: 09MAR WOD Picture

I am always bummed when I see parkour being portrayed as just a cool way to run from cops, as it gives the wrong impression about the sport, and people have asked me if I have ever run away from police like I am some kind of criminal because of that impression they got.

Similarly, it would be a bummer for crossfitters to be associated with people who go to another people's homeland and disrespect their laws. Not that I am certain that is what is happening in the picture.

So if anyone can enlighten me to what is going on in that picture if it is not BASE, I would be very happy. =)

Because a Norwegian would never illegally BASE jump off the Troll Wall? Gotcha.

Re: 09MAR WOD Picture

Of all the crooked sh*t that goes on EVERYWHERE, you're worried about some dude illegally basejumping in another country?

work on your O-lifts or something, way too much time on your hands.

He is BASE jumping... with one of those wingsuits. Do a few quick google searches for video of it, it's pretty spectacular what those guys do.

He works out locally. Maybe I could arrange for extradition if the OP could work on getting the authorities in Norway to prepare manacles?
