First Crossfit Swim WOD in a competition

This weekend at the Rumble by the River Garage Games (by the way an awesome event very well run) they had a workout that involved swimming. It was called Omaha Beach it was a team WOD. It was a run about a mile I think carrying a raft, then swimming across the river with the raft then running back to the finish line. So for those that really want to see swimming in CF Comps. It is happening.

Didn't the Faction Games involve something with water?

Re: First Crossfit Swim WOD in a competition

I wouldn't know I never even heard of the faction games. From what I have seen that is the first one, I don't doubt it though. Is there a place where you can find all of these crossfit competitions. I found out about the Garage Games by accident?

Awesome stuff.

It's the one event that's always been missing from CF imho.
