Video Article

The All Over the Map series finds Ian Wittenber of Again Faster racking up the miles on his car as he drives from Boston, Mass., to Los Angeles, Calif. Along the way, he’ll interview as many CrossFit Games competitors as he can, giving the CrossFit community a closer look at the athletes who will be competing at the Home Depot Center in July.

In the first installment, Wittenber interviews Rob Orlando and James Hobart at Hybrid Athletics in Connecticut. Orlando, a strongman competitor who spent the last year improving his running and met-con abilities, finished 22nd in 2009. Hobart, who has some impressive Oly numbers, finished 70th. Both men have been training hard and beating on their goats in hopes of improving on their Aromas performances.

Orlando will be at the Games by virtue of a No. 1 finish at the Northeast Regional, where he won three of four events. Hobart qualified by finishing in second, only eight points behind Orlando.
