The Fittest On Earth

Congratulations to Rich Froning Jr.

and Annie Thorisdottir

These two have earned the titles "Fittest Man On Earth" and "Fittest Woman On Earth" by winning the 2011 Reebok Crossfit Games.

The competitors had to swim, run, bike, row, throw, lift, jump, swing...  They did just about every human movement in one weekend to prove their fitness.  It was a great event to watch and very inspiring.

My favorite events were Event 3 and The Final.  The heart of these athletes and the comradery between the competitors really shows in these events.  The winner of the events finishes his workout, takes ten seconds to catch his breath, then goes to his competitors and cheers them on to the finish.  You rarely see this in other sports.  Other professional athletes can learn from this type of sportsmanship.
