World’s fittest to compete for three grueling days
Wednesday 14 July 2010
The CrossFit Games Finals 2010 take place July 16-18 ?at the Home Depot Center (home of the LA Galaxy soccer team) in Carson, California, USA.
This CrossFit Games event is the final competition in a series where the world's fittest, who have triumphed in regionals and sectionals around the world including in Iceland and Australia to make it to the finals, come together to try to win their section (male, female, over 50, teams) and get the $25,000 (€19,755) prize.
The twist is that none of the athletes competing have any clue as to what workouts they will have to endure over the three-day event.
CrossFit is about metabolic conditioning and the workouts combine a series of intense fast workouts without machines for core strengthening and conditioning combining weightlifting, sprinting and gymnastics.
CrossFit training is used by various militaries for training sessions including the US Marines, Royal Danish Life Guards and Canadian Forces.
