Getting a little disgusted with all the Kris hate, yea she's not a girly girl, yea she doesn't have teh abz, but guess what she consistently performs.
You are obviously not familiar with doping. Go read up on WADA guidelines for dope testing and you will realize that Crossfit's anti-doping is a joke (not that I blame them, they're relatively new to big stage competition and effective anti-doping is unrealistic given the expense and fact that they don't even know who the competitors will be ahead of time).

And I couldn't care less if Kristen wins. Just suggesting that this is not something HQ wants, for rather obvious reasons.

Re: CF Games 2011 General Thread

I agree with Rebecca.

But unfortunately even if they do test they aren't testing annually lots of ways around passing a single test the day of the event, but that said I DON'T Think that Kristan is using drugs any more then anyone else.

I also agree that the Kristan hate is absolutely stupid and ridiculous! No she isn't a girly girl, so what!! She is an awesome athlete and has proven time and time again that she gets it done. Not thinking she is a good face for Crossfit because she doesn't have classic beauty is F**CKED. One of the girls I know that is a strong competitor and is beautiful inside and out has the tattoo, "Strength is Beauty" and anyone, including CF HQ (If they have a problem with it) would be wise to think about that.

Everyone person out the trained their *** off and works very very hard to be where they are at. I think we should respect all of them.

No clue what you're getting at there. I posted a pic that showed the male and female winners.

Re: CF Games 2011 General Thread

Slightly offtopic, but why do so many athletes this year apply colored tape "racing stripe" on the lower back this year?

I'm also seeing decorative tape on shoulders, arms, thighs, etc, to the point where it makes me wonder if this tape serves some sort of functional purpose.

Can anyone enlighten me?

I'm sure are willing to try anything to recover their back/shoulders from the heavy workload they've had.

Back to the games -

Who is going to watch the ESPN feed vs the jumbotron?

I find the ESPN to be more fun, but the jumbotron is the live one.

I wonder if it would also be useful as a way of sensing when your back is rounding on the lifts.

I can't seem to get to the archived footage, but considering he's sponsored and has been wearing the reebok shoes all weekend, I am going to go out on a limb and bet he's wearing the new reebok's that are as yet unreleased for sale.

Here is a link with some pics:
