Greg Glassman, Miranda Oldroyd, and Josh Everett?

Why were Josh and Miranda not competitors this year?

And was Coach even there? I did not see him once which really surprised me. I was hoping for his annual "The winner of this competition has the right to call them self the fittest man or woman on the planet" speech.....

I don't think josh tried to compete in the open, and miranda didn't make it through her regional (she was 5th) to the games. What does this have to do with equipment?

Oh wow, thats my mistake, I'm terribly sorry. I'll ask a mod to move it to competition. I must have clicked equipment instead of competition section by mistake.

There were a bunch of photos of Glassman sitting in the HQ Box up on Facebook. So yeah, he was there.

I would have liked to see Josh and Caity doing the play-by-play during the events on ESPN3, instead of just the brief snippets of commentary.

Jeff was at the California Firefighter Olympics (Crossfit competition) this year. Put up a 295lb C&J about 10 mins after winning a metcon with 135lb GTOH and box jumps in it... He's a beast.
