Reebok CrossFit Games 2011!!


Some amazing performances over the weekend that showcased the potential of human performance accross all components of fitness. The Athletes were incredible and awe inspiring to say the least! If you didn’t see any of the action watch and be amazed on the following link http://games.crossfit.com/. go to the Watch Live and Jumbotron link to watch any of the events from the 3 day spectacle.


The Fittest on Earth have been crowned: Rich Froning Jr. and Annie Thorisdottir are the 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games champions.

Both finished second last year and went into the final three-part event of the competition with a lead. The crowns were theirs to lose, but neither faltered on the way to the top of the podium.  With Rich Froniing giving the most convincing win in Games History Placing 1st or 2nd in 7 of the 9 events. WOW! THE GUY IS A BEAST!!!! With Europes own Annie Thorisdottir placing an almost as impressive top 3 place in 7 of the 9 events Can either of them now be beat?? 

A very impressive showing also by Sam Briggs of CrossFit Central Manchester winning the final END 3 Event placing a brilliant 4th overall with her great engine on display in the killer final event Chipper with a twist. Showing what we know she’s capable of as she did with Annie, dominating the European Regionals up in Bolton earlier in the year. Great Work Sam! 

Amazing weekend of WODS a showcase of CrossFit to the World. With Reebok on board as it’s major sponsor CrossFit is only going to get bigger and better although many had doubts over the partnership to begin with, this weekend to crown the FITTEST ON EARTH was a huge success. Watch some of the coverage be amazed be inspired and take it up a notch when you get to the box. 7months in to your journey, imagine where you could be in another 7 and another 7?!
