I have pics but can't post them until I get to 15 posts. LOL

I'll bump your post count.

I am impressed with the quality and depth of the competition. To be fair to the women, I only saw about 10 crawl out of the water.

LOL Did you know that none of the competitors had any idea a swimming portion would be included in this years games?!?

It pissed a lot of people off. Because 85% of the crossfit gyms don't have access to swimming facilities.

I hope you're not serious. They just showed up and were told they had to swim? Brutal.

I've never seen a Crossfit video that referenced swimming in any way.

I wish I was kidding. Like I said I'm not deep into Crossfit, but that was the buzz Friday night when we got to the arena, that Fridays first event included swimming and no one was expecting it.

"Then, the first individual workout was announced. To the shock of most everyone in the room, the athletes were informed that on Friday morning, they should arrive at the Home Depot Center at 5:15 a.m., so they can board buses for the Santa Monica beach. At 7 a.m. Pacific time, the men will do the first heat of the workout, which is:

For time:
210-meter ocean swim

Run 1,500m in soft-sand
50 Chest-to-bar pull-ups
100 hand release push-ups
200 Squats
Run 1,500m in soft-sand "

From Smithfit blog..

I guess the obvious next question is, what did those without swimsuits do.

I believe Reebok, who was the major sponsor of the event, provided them.

They provided every other piece of competition clothing. (As you'll see in the pics of the guys who kept their shirts on)
