What if you don’t win the title “Fittest on Earth”? What comes next? Join 2010 CrossFit Games competitors Jason Khalipa, 16th-place finisher and 2008 champion; Joey Warren, 13th-place finisher; and Gabe Subry, 24th-place finisher, as they ponder these questions and reminisce about their Games experiences.
After the Games, each of these competitors took a brief vacation before going right back to the gym to hit WODs with renewed intensity. Through his experiences this year, each gained valuable insight into how to train for next year. In addition to addressing physical weaknesses, these athletes are attempting to hurdle the mental aspects of competition, including self-doubt, over-excitement and too much speed.
Over the next year, constant improvement is the overarching goal as these top athletes work to put themselves in position to grasp that elusive title.
