This is the 12th installment of the Complete 2009 CrossFit Games videos, and the first part of the women’s competition. Here is complete coverage of the women’s run event.
The video starts with an introduction to the competition, as well as several competitors’ thoughts about it. Dave Castro briefs the runners, Greg Glassman sets the stage, and they were off on a brutal 7-kilometer, varied-terrain run. The men and women ran together, using the first kilometer on the road to spread out before tackling the hills.
The stakes were high. The last athletes to finish the run had to go first on the max-deadlift event, and the 10 athletes at the bottom of the pile after two events were eliminated from the competition.
Sarah Dunsmore had the top run time by well over a minute at 41:44, while Lauren Erwin (43:03) and Carey Kepler (43:41) rounded out the top three.
There are interviews with: Greg Glassman, Nicole Carroll, Gillian Mounsey, Nadine Burns, Carey Kepler, Tamryn Venter, Nikki Hall, Andrea Bell, Lisa Ray, Jocelyn Forrest, Caity Matter, Laura DeMarco, Lauren Pryor, Kim Malz, Tia McDougal, Sarah Dunsmore, Nicole Gordon.
