Fittest on Earth

August 3, 2018

 

 

Day 1 of the CrossFit Games has come and past, and there are three more days of competition.  The first day almost lays to rest the question of whether or not we can call these athletes the Fittest on Earth.

 

Day 1 consisted of:

 

1.  A 12k Bike Criterium race

2.  A 30 ring muscle up for time challenge

3.  A 1RM in three lifts (back squat, press, deadlift)

4.  A marathon row (literally - 42,000m)

 

The question must be asked - who else can do all this, and put in good scores?  The list MUST be small, and perhaps it only consists of the top CrossFit athletes.

 

Each year the challenge is greater and the case stronger to make the "Fittest" claim.  Do you agree?  If not, then who can claim that title?

 

Tune in to games.crossfit.com over the weekend to see more of the extreme fitness challenges these athletes will face.
