From July 16-18, 2010, the world’s fittest men competed under a blazing sun at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. For three days, elite athletes put their training to the test in a new sport—the sport of fitness.

The CrossFit crucible was unforgiving, and weaknesses were punished time and again as intense workouts separated the top athletes from their peers. Trial and toil in the sunshine produced sweat, tears, bloody hands and disappointment, but also successes, smiles, new records and friendships.

The CrossFit Games challenged the human mind, body and spirit, and anyone who competed accomplished a monumental task in qualifying for the Games and putting themselves through our sport’s ultimate test. Their desire to be stronger and faster drives CrossFit to new heights and ultimately helps define elite fitness. What follows is a tribute to the 2010 male competitors who gave their all and left nothing in the tank.

Their pain was temporary. Their images were not.

The time of CrossFit has come. It will soon cease to be the misunderstood "underground" of fitness across the globe. We as CrossFit athletes are paving the way into the future of ultimate health and fitness. After watching the 2010 Games live feed over the web, it added an immense amount of fuel to my personal fire and I can't wait for July 2011. One day, I'll take my shot at the podium. Until then, 3..2..1..Go!

Is there any discussion about holding the games in winter time, i.e in semi-cold weather? It seems that the heat was such a big component to this year's games, maybe introducing cold weather would be just as valid.
