The world’s fittest men and women converged on Carson, California this weekend for the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games. SIX of the first seven individual events at this year’s Games were endurance-based tests. Here are a few glimpses of the stellar athleticism we’ve come to expect from these athletes…
At Top: Games veteran and now THREE time champion Rich Froning navigates the “Zig Zag Sprint”
Second from Top: Former marathoner Kaleena Ladeairous, on her way to a 16:46 first place finish in “Naughty Nancy”
Third from Top: 36 year-old mother of two Michelle Crawford dominates the “Zig Zag Sprint”, taking first place in the event–with beautiful form, nonetheless
Bottom: North Central athlete, and former collegiate sprinter Deborah Cordner Carson barrels out of the gate in the “Zig Zag Sprint”
