Kelowna - based Brent Fikowski is one of the favorites for this year's Crossfit Games!
With all the drama and excitement surrounding last weekend's competition, the REAL DEAL CrossFit Games just kind of crept up on me.
I have been looking forward to watching the Games for a long time - there's a very different format for the competition and much more diversity in terms of the countries represented.
The Games kicked off today, and with a couple of events down for the individuals, the field has been whittled down to 50 men and 50 women. These athletes will continue to compete through the weekend to earn the title of the fittest man and woman in the world!!
There will be an unknown number of events coming up, so the athletes have to be prepared for whatever the weekend will bring.
This is what makes the CrossFit Games one of THE most exciting events in the world - the game itself is constantly changing and there is almost no limit to the type and complexity of the challenges that the athletes may face.
