“I’m glad I’m not participating in this right now,” Miranda Oldroyd says as she watches the CrossFit 801 Affiliate Cup team train.
A total of 70 teams will be competing at the 2010 CrossFit Games, which will mark the second year of team competition at the event. With the competition promising to be fierce, teams are gearing up for tests that will challenge both their athleticism and their ability to work as a team.
The WODs are unknown, so each team is forced to guess what might show up at the Games. The best strategy, of course, is to be good at everything and have incredible collective work capacity.
In this video shot July 5 in Utah, the 801 athletes and their coaches talk about their preparations in the final days before the big show in California.
