You're right, I guess I just assumed since he's been all over the videos. Obviously he's there supporting his lady, which is great anyway.


other than that something I just thought of, though most of these movements are slightly unorthodox for competition, we do all of them except the softball throw at my affiliate... so I was thinking of other unorthodox movements we use regularly and came up with the 2nd event for teams -
Team wheelbarrow race! No, not pushing a wheelbarrow with weights in it, I mean the old school hold your teammate's ankles while they walk on their hands kind of wheelbarrow. !

Re: Individual Events 2 & 5 Released

Personally I like it. A lot. I wish I was there to see it in person. I guess if you don't like it, you can just not watch!

Yes, if you ever have any constructive criticism of anything you should just abandon it all together.

Re: Individual Events 2 & 5 Released

The softball and water jug events are curious. I would think that if CrossFit HQ was trying to showcase athlete proficiency at powerlifting, Olympic lifting, track, etc that they would have gone with chucking a javelin or discus; likewise, carrying some loaded farmers walk handles or beer kegs. Interesting event choices.
