2008,2009 Crossfit games competitors

A question to those that have competed in Crossfit style competitions before.

How did you go about preparing for the games?
Did you work excessivley on your weaknesses leading up to the games?
Did you do a strength bias heading into the games?
Did you simply follow the main site WOD?
Did you follow your local Crossfit gym WOD?

I'd be curious to hear about anything done from about 6 months prior to the competition.

Also add in anything you would change or are doing now to prepare for the upcoming qualifiers.

I would love to hear from any and all that have competed in a Crossfit competiton, especially those that competed in the 2007 or 2008 games.

Re: 2008,2009 Crossfit games competitors

Patrick,

I am not sure how many responses you will get, but if you go to http://games2008.crossfit.com/athletes/ (w/f safe) and scroll about half way down the page you will see a bunch of games competitors' profiles and interviews. There are already a couple of threads for people preparing for the 2009 games. This one for example http://www.board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=40075 (w/f safe).
