He thanked all the volunteers and judges who worked tirelessly the entire weekend, and Justin talked about his experience and the athletes and their performances. He also passed on some positive feedback the Home Depot Center personnel had about the type of attendees who came to watch the Games.
18:00 Rich Froning Jr. just placed second at the 2010 CrossFit Games. He came on the show to talk about his experience and explained what it was like to enter the arena to compete against well-known CrossFitters who are featured on the main site on a consistent basis. He walked listeners through his competitive experience of the weekend and gave insight into his strategies and his ups and downs over the course of nine separate scoring events.
44:15 Justin did a product review on Rx Jump Ropes. He explained the origin and design of the ropes Dave Newman created. These durable, fast-spinning and consistent jump ropes will soon be carried by Rogue Fitness. Justin gave a glowing review based on the fact that the rope allowed him to actually do double-unders, which is out of the ordinary for him.
