CrossFit Games Memories

CrossFit Games Memories

With the 2015 CrossFit Games starting in a couple weeks, Shirley and I were reminiscing about when our own humble CFLA team made the 2011 CrossFit Games by the skin of our teeth, by the grace of our quality. We were a rag-tag crew adorned in unflattering, boxy baby-blue jerseys and of very ordinary ability, especially by today’s standard of CrossFit athlete. But our heart was beyond tremendous; it was unparalleled that year. (What other community would flash mob the Games with the Cupid Shuffle?) That, coupled with our high standard of movement (which made a difference when the workouts were actually judged) and the planets aligning, and the wind blowing in such a way that our sails ballooned perfectly, we made it. It was an amazing experience. One that is deeply etched in CFLA history.

This video of the team training was made by our own Todd Spradlin. It still chokes me up.
